Every week, pretty much, Kevin Myers writes an article that sparks outraged indignation across that portion of the internet that knows who Kevin Myers is. Directed by links on Twitter or Facebook, hundreds of people flock to the Irish Independent website to read the piece and see for themselves what all the fuss is about. This, of course, is one of the reasons why the Irish Independent continues to publish the increasingly mad ramblings of the man Myers: they know he kicks up stinks, and they know that stinks are good for their bottom line. More hits means more money extracted from advertisers.
So: this site will reproduce Myers’s article every week, as soon as it is available on the Irish Independent website. The hope is that people will come here if and when they wish to read and comment on his terrible columns, rather than going to independent.ie and further filling the coffers of INM.
The correct course of action may well be to simply ignore Myers, but on those occasions when that is impossible, you can amuse/enrage yourself with his textular nonsense here.
