    I'm not normally in favour of privatization... but RTE should be sold while it still has some value.

    When we built our house in 1990 we had no idea that we would not be able to pick up RTE, a few of us went together and rigged up a "deflector" that kinda worked for a few months, we could pick up the BBCs and ITV so we never fixed it.
    The TV licence van came around and threatened us with prosecution but nothing came of it and the four households on our road have never paid the fee.

    They are all overpaid for employees of a tiny media company in a small country. They seem to benchmark their salaries vis a vis UK giants. Its like the manager of Shamrock Rovers earning Barcelona wages. Same job, different world.

    Ryan Tubridy: spins pro Pat Hickey, drowns out criticism of Redacted, eggs on FF ...
    Joe Duffy: ditto re Hickey, shills for every establishment position in sight
    Marian Finucane: has yet to master the basics of her trade, like minimal objectivity and the English language
    ORourke and OCallaghan: should be on FFs payroll and NOT yours and mine.

    If one of them even vaguely kept their side of the bargain, theyd be worth a quarter of what they cream off what turns out to be a red balance sheet ...

    Bravo, RTE.
