Irish journalist humiliates EuroBank technocrat who won’t stop ducking hard questions

Vincent Browne takes on Klaus Masuch over the issue of the Irish people having to foot the bill for unguaranteed bondholders.

A bureaucrat mouths bland reassurances, then asserts (despite all appearances to the contrary) that the question has been resolved. Browne doesn’t let up. It’s quite a stirring spectacle.

Do you have the courage to live your passion, even if it means you need to ask difficult questions in public? Even if you have to be impolite and hold a bureaucrats feet to the fire in public?

Do you have the courage to be a journalist instead of a reporter?

Do you have the courage to directly question what you are told is true?

The camera is…

‘The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.’
~ Dorothea Lange

I’ve noticed the same is true about writing. The more I write and study fiction and storytelling, the more I learn how to see life outside of fiction.

My art teaches me to see my life with new eyes.
