I tried to listen back to the Eddie Hobbs interview on TheRightHook and am a bit shocked that a part is missing.
During the interview Philip Molloy is having a go at Eddie Hobbs for writing a piece to the Wall Street Journal.
Philip criticizes Eddie for publishing his opinion in the WSJ and should have "worn the green jersey" and instead published it locally in Ireland.
Eddie then goes on to explain that due to his relationship with RTE, he is basciallly not allowed to publish such a piece in Ireland.
But crucially, this bit is removed from the NewsTalk archive of the interview.
It's a criticizm of state-run broadcaster and the allegation is essentially that as a jounalist, he is muzzled.
Pretty important stuff I think.
Is it possible NewsTalk have intentially removed this criticism from their archive?
Hear it for yourself:
The Right Hook

The portion of the interview missing is the very end of Part 2, beginning of Part 3.
