    Default Is it harder to get out of RTE then into it.

    When you look the age profile of some of the RTE presenters does it beg the question of is it harder to get out then into it.
    Larry Gogan, Bill O'Herlihy, Jimmy Magee, Gay Byrne, Mike Murphy, Sean Og O'Ceallaghain eventually retired at 80+ as did Micheal O'Muirhearteag (don't reply if it is only to criticise name spelling). Ok some of them are contractors and freelancers but surely RTE don't have to pay for these outside presenters when there are perfectly able staffers.

    Every single facet of RTE from radio to TV et als should be sold off and disposed of immediately.


    There has never really been proper "public broadcasting" in this state .

    That lying excuse has underpinned the profligate use of licence payers money almost since the state owned broadcastor embarked on their first left wing propoganda exercises.

    Now that TV that as a general popular medium is dying the cash bound Irish state should dump the RTE albatross and her highly paid circus fleas.
    Repeal the thirty-fourth amendment of the Irish constitution :
    Children have a basic right to be reared by a mother and a father.

    When you 'retire' from R.T.E. you are soon forgotten but never,unfortunately,gone.

    Does RTE operate on the 'blood in, blood out' principle?

    Uncle Gaybo would have retired long ago if he did not keep losing all his money!

    RTE is an embarassment to the nation, media students worldwide are being taught what can go wrong, with the use of RTE examples such as the Kevin Reynolds defamation and the presidential frontline behaviour. RTE have no respect for the Irish public.

    Did my ears deceive me this morning or was it actually Deirdre Purcell on R1... what a blast from the past.

    Sure, it's an income I suppose, 'til the ''writer's block'' passes.

    RTE is an organisation that is rotten to it's core. Scandalously for a Public Service broadcaster, it is instrumental in keeping the populace stupid.
