Shakin’ Stevens coverage highlights Ireland’s ‘Paper of Record’ slide

Was the fact that Michael Barrett (aka Shakin’ Stevens),  who appeared in court in Northern Ireland accused of assaulting a photographer at what appears to have been a small town hotel cabaret show, really worthy of the space and photo awarded the story in last Friday’s edition (11 December 09) of the Irish Times?

Just more evidence, as if it were needed, of the creeping tabloidisation of the once renowned broadsheet?
