It is always a source of fascination to me how lazy people in journalism can sometimes be. A good example is the following image used by the Irish Examiner on their website this morning when writing about the slowdown in Irish house building.
Why are they using an image of street in the United Kingdom then – more particularly London? See the maroon sign on the right – KFH estate agents – “A major force in the London property market”.
Can they not find a similar vista anywhere in Dublin, or Cork, or anywhere in the country? And if not, why are they trying to portray a street full of houses for sale in their newspaper when if they can’t find such a street in Ireland, it’s obviously not representative of the housing situation in Ireland. Or are they just lazy sods?
