In March 2008, the paper's long-standing 'Squinter' column sharply criticised
Gerry Adamsover high levels of violent crime in West Belfast , following the murder of former IRA prisoner Bap McGreevy by teenaged hoodlums. A week later, the news paper published a front page apology for carrying the story and the column was removed from the Squinter blog.
The newspaper was satirised in the "
Portadown News" website as "The Angrytown News". The Andersonstown News contacted the employers of " Newton Emerson" (the creator of "Portadown News") with a list of exaggerated complaints about the site - resulting in Mr Emerson being forced out of his job [ [http://www.guardian.co.uk/Northern_Ireland/Story/0,2763,625836,00.html "Guardian", Outed satirist is forced to resign] ] .
