Dublin’s City Hall is under fire after the country’s biggest newspaper said it would no longer publish online in a move that it claims could affect its editorial independence.
The Dubliner is owned by a consortium of national and international newspapers, and has long maintained its online presence online and in print.
However, the paper is also the only major Irish newspaper to be banned from the Republic’s internet-based TV service, which has been accused of imposing a “digital apartheid”.
The ban comes after Dublin City Council decided last week that it would ban all online media outlets from the city by May 2019.
It has previously argued that the move could damage the city’s reputation, but the city has been left to fend for itself, with newspapers facing cuts of between 5 per cent and 10 per cent.
The decision was greeted with outrage by the newspaper industry, with many saying it would have a detrimental effect on its credibility, which relies heavily on its online audience.
“I think this is absolutely appalling, absolutely horrendous, absolutely devastating, and I think it will affect the ability of our newspapers to operate,” said Niall O’Dowd, the chairman of the Irish Media Association.
The decision to ban the paper came after a report published by the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) last week said the move would put at risk the future of the internet in Ireland.”
It is a shame it will not be the case, because it will have a devastating effect on the credibility of our publications.”
The decision to ban the paper came after a report published by the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) last week said the move would put at risk the future of the internet in Ireland.
It also raised concerns about the ability for Irish publishers to remain online and provide coverage of key stories such as the rise of the far-right National Front party.
The PAC found that online news sites could be hit with “significant disruption” and that local newspapers could be unable to compete for readers by reducing their content or cutting back on news and opinion.
“This would have significant impact on the local news media,” said committee chairman Mary Nolan.
The PAC report found that in some areas, local newspapers were already struggling financially. “
And the newspapers would lose their ability to deliver the coverage that is important to them.”
The PAC report found that in some areas, local newspapers were already struggling financially.
The report said: “It would be difficult for local newspapers to survive on their existing resources if they were forced to make the difficult decision of not publishing.”
In addition, the PAC found, the digital blackout could damage local journalism in other parts of the country, with the impact being felt across all newspapers, online and offline.
“We are not a free press, we are a free market, but it would be very difficult for a newspaper to survive if it was forced to publish more content and less opinion,” said Michael O’Hara, executive director of the Association of State Newspapers.
“And so we would be seeing more and more newspapers losing their ability and ability to report the news.”
Last week, the Irish Independent newspaper, which is owned and published by one of the major newspapers in Ireland, warned that it was losing its online circulation due to the government’s decision.
“The decision has now been taken to ban newspapers online.
We are not going to be able to deliver our content, we can’t publish in Dublin, we’re going to go dark,” said the newspaper’s chief executive, Paul Connolly.”
It’s a sad day for journalism in Ireland.”
However, others, including the Irish Times, said it was the latest in a series of government moves to restrict the availability of news online.
“With the rise in the far right and anti-immigration views, the far left in particular, it’s clear that some of the most powerful voices in our society are going to see their voices diminished and that will have consequences on the quality of our journalism,” said Mark Fitzgerald, a member of the editorial board of the Times of London.
“In the end, this is a sad, sad day.
But this is not the end of the story.
This is only the beginning of a much bigger battle for the future.”
The Times of Ireland, which currently has about 150 journalists on staff, said in a statement that it welcomed the move, but said it understood that the government was not doing the right thing and had to act swiftly.
“These decisions do not represent a decision on the paper’s editorial content, which remains free and open to all,” the statement read.
“As part of that, we will be exploring all possible options to make it easier for the newspaper to publish.””
