    Default RTE on mid-term?

    Noticed the main news only half hour yesterday and the lunchtime news only 6 minutes on Tuesday.
    Reminded me of an article Declan Lynch(yes in the Sindo-calm yourselves) a few years ago- "The World Ended Today-Heres Reeling In The Years".

    Dont get me wrong,I love a bit of RITY as much as the next man but can anyone explain why RTE deem this week less newsworthy than any other?

    few courts are sitting, the dail is on a break, the schools and colleges are off....
    slow news, like august...

    biggest news yesterday was that the troika would start monitoring health spending....i mean wtf have they been doing for the past 2 years? isn't the CNAG and the DOH not supposed to be doing that on a monthly basis also? surely its just a matter of including them on the circulation list.
    troika approval required for any new spend and/or salary review....now that would be news

    There is actually no news to be had when the politicians are on their holiers. This is because news outlets rely on politicians and their publicists to drip feed them 'news'. Everything else that happens, just happens and is ignored. The world continues to spin on its axis, and we are all the better for not being reminded everyday about how poorly off we apparently are (with our first world problems).

    RTÉ is always cac when the schools/Dáil is off. How many more times are they going to show Reeling in the Years???
    If you continue to elect idiots in elections, don't be surprised when the result is an idiotic government.

    Pravda is always rubbish. Even when the montrose quango makes an even less effort than usual.
    Coveney's ambition is the be Ireland's next EU Commissar and Ireland will pay a price as he builds his CV to position himself sufficiently loyal to the nEU empire.

    I assume they've been giving the Government enough wriggle room/rope with which to hang themselves...

    And the Govt. have obliged... by tip toeing around the PS/unions with their early retirement/voluntary redundancy horse sh!t...

    And so now that we're coming to the end of 'Bailout 1' with many of the forecasts on which targets were set having failed to materialise, the Troika are now going to have to do what the Govt failed to do...

    It's all so tedious and predictable...

    Now the Govt will blame the big bad Troika for the imposition of things they were too gutless to tackle themselves...
