Getting The News Out

Maggie Threinfhir • March 2003


Here in the United States, I search and listen to various media, seeking untainted, truthful media sources of news. I continue to come up with VERY few, with the consistent exception of THE BLANKET! I personally thank you for your efforts to get the news out to all in a timely manner.

The US media ignored or silenced the fact that the United States had refused Bernadette McAliskey entry to this country. I believe THE BLANKET was the first media source to let the US know! Until the Irish and international press had started to respond, there were no reports that she was denied entry, certainly no reports of those US citizens who oppose this action against her!

Regardless of the multitude of media sources in the US, the access to international news and opinion is limited and censored here. I appreciate and look forward to every edition of the BLANKET! My thanks to all who make it possible!!!
