More On Roy Greenslade

Ruth Dudley Edwards has written this cutting assessment of Guardian blogger, academic journalist and Sinn Fein confidante, Roy Greenslade.

The intro to the piece says he is a correspondent upon whom a green mist has descended. Personally, my problem with characters like Greenslade is not that mists have descended upon them, whether green, red or blue, but that they are dishonest about it happening. There is absolutely nothing wrong with journalists holding political views; the error is in not declaring them when writing about the subject. In Greenslade’s case his sin lies in not admitting his sympathy for Sinn Fein when he writes about the party or matters which concern it and in case of any misunderstanding by readers my opinion of this would be the same, and often was at a time when it was unpopular and even career threatening to say so, if it was Eoghan Harris writing about the North.

A reader, Sean Gallagher has written in to say that SF MP, Pat ‘Smiler’ Doherty is the uncle of Roy’s wife. Can anyone confirm this?
