    Default RTE news correspondents . do they not go to broadcasting schools and take elocution lessons

    Just watching RTE news here in America and couldn't help to notice the " eh eh em er em er eh " when correspondents are talking
    I only notice this with Irish correspondents , do you not have broadcasting college in Ireland .

    No, but as a country we have a reasonable standard of written english. Why doesn't your country?
    I'm living in America, and in America, you're on your own. America's not a country. It's just a business. Now f***ing pay me.

    What is a casting college and what makes it broad?

    Full stops are handy - you should use them where required. Where you did use one, it should have been a question mark.

    I just saw eh eh Leotard on the RTE news on his immigration recruitment mission to Africa, and he's just as bad as the interviewer .

    I actually agree with you that the standard isn't great and they should get training to get rid of the ums, ams, ehs and so on.

    You seem to have some native Irish colloquialisms to hand yourself; Something some of our resident North American Trolls would envy you.

    I know what you mean and where you're coming from. Some people on Irish media say "am" after every sentence, it seems. People on Irish state television tend to have little talent or positive attributes.
    Above, in photo, this gentleman stammers his way through his irrelevant program and has done so for decades. Nobody at state media ever gets fired.
