Question of the Day
Yesterday's Question of the Day asked … Who was the Irish crime reporter whose murder at the hands of drug lords led to the creation of Ireland's Criminal Assets Bureau? Bonus points if you also name last night's Oscar-winning actress who later portrayed her in a film. That would be Veronica Guerin, later portrayed by Academy Award-winning actress Cate Blanchett.
Congratulations to Heather Escaravage, who was the very first person to tweet in both answers correctly. Many honorable mentions also must go to Cindi Lash with Pittsburgh Magazine, health and beauty journalist Charlotte LoBuono, Jennifer Waters at MarketWatch, @.l.interpretations, Edward Tenner, Jeanne Kirk, Ed Joyce at KPCC, Jennifer Mascia, Mitch Cohen, Hollywood Highlands, Judge Susan Sexton, Bill Chuck of the Chicago Sun-Times and Boston Globe, Sarah Jersild, Julie Webb-Pullman, Hugh Cutler, Rachel Roh and Leonard Greycloud for also answering that right.
Here's another Irish-themed journalism question: What does RTÉ (the national public service broadcaster of Ireland) stand for (in Gaelic), and what is its English translation?
