In the aftermath of the Charlie Hebdo attack, many people in Ireland were asked what they would do if a similar attack happened again.
A local newspaper, the Irish Times, offered a helpful answer.
“When a newspaper publishes an article in an area which is known for its terrorism, and that area is then attacked, the local newspaper will not publish the article,” the paper wrote.
“Instead, the paper will run an editorial condemning the attack, but will not comment on the matter.
This editorial is published in the paper of record.”
The paper also provided an example of a local paper in which an article on terrorism had been published but no comment had been made on the article.
“The article in question has been published by the local paper of the area and was then posted on social media by some anonymous person who has been trying to make a point about the attack on the paper,” the Irish newspaper wrote.
“This person has been spreading fake news that the attack had been ‘spontaneous’, that a ‘few people’ had attacked the paper, and in some cases that the paper was ‘hacked’.”
A few people have been attacking the local Irish Times in recent weeks, and this is one of the ways they try to get attention.
The Irish newspaper is a part of the Times Group, which is owned by News Corporation.
In response to the Irish newspapers attack, some people are taking to social media to vent their frustrations.
“You’ve just made a few people look stupid by making such a stupid and stupid and offensive statement.
The attack is clearly on your doorstep,” wrote one Facebook user.”
People are angry at you.
But you’ve been lying to them.
The people who have been attacked are people you are pretending to know.
You are being dishonest,” another user wrote.
Many people have also been calling for the Irish Government to take steps to stop local newspapers from printing inflammatory material.
The Irish Times has since posted a statement saying that the newspaper will publish an editorial in the coming days, but would not comment further.
