Our Favourite Journalists

how about some of the other "experts"?

rock on!

Property journalists have already fallen victim to the crash as newspapers have cut budgets and downpaged – or axed – their property supplements, because of loss of advertising.

developers use offers of lavish trips abroad to entice journalists to write about their projects.

"There are a huge number of freebies," says journalist Graham Norwood. "One top agent offered me cash to write a nice piece about a property."

Oooooooh - the irony!

If these ramping, bonus chasers were not let loose in the first place . . . . .

Among the victims of Ireland's property crash are newspaper groups themselves: at the height of the boom in 2006, The Irish Times bought property search website Myhome.ie for €50m, a sum it would now be unlikely to fetch.

Given that this was written in the Independent on Sunday, part of the Independent News and Media, owner of the, ahem, Belfast Telegraph, why did they not mention our old friend Propertynews.com instead? :unsure:

I had a read at this and a bit of a think.

There is no way that any "investors" could claim that they were ill-informed or advised or tricked into buying property.

there were warning signs - there were those of us calling "wolf, wolf, wolf" and we were chastised for this.

how about those who didn't buy, they give us lots of money for our good advice???
