Still "broadly nationalist" in outlook?[edit]

Wondering about what it says in this article about the newspaper's political alignment. I was visiting Dublin and bought a copy of this newspaper yesterday, the day after Gerry Adams' arrest, and the front page as well as pages 3-8 were entirely devoted to discussing the story -- and every piece that had a slant of some sort was very critical of Sinn Fein, Adams, and their IRA ties. Not that you have to be pro-SF to be nationalist in outlook of course! Maybe it's pro-SDLP? Still thought it was notable enough to ask here if the paper's alignment really is still as is described in the article, anyway. No-itsme (talk) 16:49, 3 May 2014 (UTC)
