    Default RTE promote an official anti- FF agenda.

    The last minute of tonights frontline [20 sept 10] displayed a naked and scurillous attack on Brian Cowan and the Fianna Fail party.

    It was presented in the format of scrap saturday without the humour.

    RTE are going seriously political and anti Fianna Fail.
    Is this what licence payers pay a licence for?

    RT News: The Frontline

    Part 3.So called comedy sketch.
    In reality a vicious,unfunny & personalized attack on Brian Cowan & the FF party.

    Amongst other gems, it proclaimed Fianna Fail as 'The Publican' Party. Definitely brave if not too funny.

    This was way over the line.

    The Frontline is billed as a serious current affairs show, and the attack was on a political party, not the Government. There's a huge difference.

    Somebody really fukked up in this.

    I missed the ad, but this kind of satire somehow benefits FF.

    The state funded broadcastor at the end of the frontline programe has exhibited a partisan attack on a specific poltical party ie Fianna Fail.

    Comics were hired to lampoon & viciously satarize a specific political party.

    Is RTE now being run by politically motivated scum whose agenda is to destroy a specific political party.?

    What has happened to impartiality.

    Hiding behind the Green Flag only lasted so long.

    FF colours shine through in the end. Cheerio.

    About time they did. They spent too long on their knees in front of the party.
