    Default Michael Martin - "RTE must have balance"

    He just said this on Newstalk.

    I think he forgot to add that the balance must be heavily skewed towards FF.

    On RTE 6-1 news, the opening slot was on NAMA and we had David Murphy interviewing some mouth for Bloxham Stockbrokers and then Tom Parlon.

    End of piece.

    Balance at its finest, greedy stockbrokers on one end balanced by greedy developers on the other.
    Blessed be the threadmakers.

    why is tom parlon given any airtime by anybody? he's as much at fault for the property bubble as any banker or politician.

    He suggested we might have to look at the position of British newspapers in Ireland. None of that "single-market" nonsense for the Minister. Get your publications off our deliberations was the message.

    The fact is that nobody is offering balance on Lisbon. Not RTE and not The Irish Times. What bothers the Minister is not lack of balance but that we might hear both sides of the story.

    He should be careful what he wishes for.

    They are so "Pravda" that I've almost given up on it as a news source...

    In the last two days Newstalk have had the 2 most nauseating interviews I have ever heard! I'm undecided though as to which one was the worst, yesterday with Brian Linehan or this morning with Micheal "passionate" Martin.
    Is there anything Martin isn’t passionate about? He's passionate for Lisbon and he is passionate for the All-Ireland, so much so that he is even going to skip a day of this great economic forum which is been hosted over the weekend! Maybe he's just not as passionate about the country.

    Ryan Tubridy is on about the Pope's visit at this very moment. Seems very positive about it so far.

    I wonder will there be balance later. Doubt it.

    The problem is, in the quest for "balance", the truth is often drowned out.
