Only towards the end of the Belfast Telegraph “Sit Down – Sort it Out” did they reveal their default anti-academic selection position . There can be no doubt that readers convinced otherwise by previous Belfast Telegraph campaigns reflecting popular views on selection have been misled. Sinn Fein John O’Dowd’s refusal to participate may have given the impression that his objection was based on the Belfast Telegraph’s support for a choice of academic selection. The Belfast Telegraph made no such commitment. The rival Belfast Media Group proved that impression false.
