I don’t normally simply link to a new website I have begun to read, but in this instance I think mediaforum.ie deserves to be highlighted. Anyone involved in the communications industry in Ireland or that is interested in the Irish media should visit this website.

It was created as a space for balanced debate about the media in Ireland. Although it is relatively new, the few pieces of commentary already posted are indicative of the high quality to expect. Here are some of the highlights:

A variety of submissions as part of the Broadcasting Commission of Ireland’s consultation on a new Code of Programming Standards have been posted on the site. I found Comhlamh’s submission to be particularly interesting. It highlights the contrast in protecting the privacy of patients in hospitals in Ireland and developing countries.

Michael McMahon’s article ‘Technology vs Quality‘ is an insightful look at the future of TV and questions how and whether developments in technology are going to impact on the quality of programming available for us to actually watch?

I’m looking forward to seeing how the website develops and will be eagerly reading new articles if what has been posted thus far is indicative of the ongoing quality.

    Yesh some guy emailled me about the site. Posted about it because the quality of the commentary is very good, unlike half the stuff I’m asked to link to or look at.
