I remember a time when stories would make the online version of the paper, but not the print version. It was understandable because so much notes could be put online than in print.

Now why would they do the reverse? Could it be that the online version reaches a wider audience, which they don’t want to do, but don’t want to say they’re biased against certain view points?

Think the Gen Z and angry Millennials won’t see it in the print version perhaps?

This is it. They cannae be arsed with the Twitter mobs.

I just wrote a response below but the answer might be simpler. Having looked at the Irish Time's online opinion section Brenda Power is not there but other opinion writers are including Breda O'Brien another conservative, Catholic woman. Power's contract might simply be for the printed version of the paper since the IT might have filled their quota with conservative, Catholic women by having O'Brien on their online site--she's actually worse.

The IT just reformatted their website so I'm subject to correction but I have a feeling they only have the most popular writers on their website. Don't worry about Powers because she writes for the UK Times on Sunday, which is online.

Edit: none of her prior pieces seem to be online at IT but I'm on mobile and it's fiddly.
