Slugger Awards – What Geldof Had to Say
Bob Geldof made a plea (via video) at the Slugger Awards for a fair deal in Northern Ireland for the provision of local news in the digital age.
“And we found out that somehow not only us, but everyone else who wanted to compete had been excluded and it’s preposterous – it seems to be ok that England, Wales and Scotland will get millions of pounds flowing their way to test out new ways and new media for delivering local news but not Northern Ireland. It’s like it’s ok for NI to be the also-ran in the UK, not to get money for new companies, or new ways for delivering new media."
