Taiwan and the Irish media

Today's Irish Independent mentions Taiwan for the first time that I've seen in months. There has been nothing on the threats against Taiwan by China, but today the Independent has a short article on the supposed shift (there isn't one — a breaking of silence is the most you could call it) by the White House on Taiwanese independence.

I can understand why the US or Ireland or any state might tread warily when dealing with the China-Taiwan issue. However, I can't understand why the Irish media is so reticent in talking about the Chinese threats.
