Irish Examiner - couldn't report their way out of a bag

I'm sick to death of De Paper - their reporting is poor, they reguarly print UK-based articles without localising them "eg the Prime Minister announced today" or "Police Chiefs in Little Twittering reported ..". They often call the Garda Police and generally are sloppy. Today they are running articles about yesterday's Ryanair flight diversion. The first one criticises the fact that the passengers had to wait for 2-3 hours before being evacuated. The second one mentions that the passengers were immediately evacuated. The Examiner is supposedly a professional outfit - a little bit of proofing and consistency checking would not go astray.
