    He gets 10% of the country listening to him every day. He gets ad revenues. When he goes on holiday the listenership drops. Of all the people on RTE, he's the one who's getting his market value.

    Hang on. We both know that this thread isn't about the fact that a few pence of your licence fee goes to pay for this (actually, the profitability of the programme is something which probably keeps your licence fee down).

    Be honest - this thread has a bit of snobbery about it. I bet you were sitting in the car thinking 'I must create a thread on this'. Is that any different to thinking 'I must talk to Joe about this'?

    This.

    The separate question of whether the show is any good or not, or in keeping with a public-service broadcaster is a matter entirely of opinion/individual taste. The fact it is that it succeeds in its mission: to attract listeners and advertisers.

    That is all well and good, but is it "good, public interest, broadcasting"?

    RTE's charter is:
    RTÉ, as the national public service broadcaster, shall reflect the democratic,
    social and cultural values of Irish society and the need to preserve media
    pluralism


    What part of Joe Duffy's pseudo-concerned victim-fest is aligned to the charter? Who don't they commit to contacting the relevant authorities and providing follow-through for real public interest?

    I guess sometimes when you wonder how the country got to be as phucked up as it did you just have to consider how many people are happy with low standards in all publicly funded institutions.
