The British Press & Northern Ireland

Description:

This 1972 pamphlet from Derry socialist Eamonn McCann attacked British press coverage in Northern Ireland. McCann claimed that the British press had been reasonably objective until the deployment of British soldiers but that after August 1969 the press had been uncritical of soldiers’ behaviour and blamed any trouble which occurred on the IRA.
