It is not every day that the leader of Fianna Fáil publicly criticises the front page of a national newspaper. But that is what happened yesterday when Micheál Martin put out a tweet about an Irish Independent story about a 'backlash' against him in his party.

I have to compliment the very special effort made this morning in the Independent. My support for journalistic independence makes page 8. #INM19
