In fairness John he touched many peoples lives...in much the same way that Octy nearly touched cloth....cos he got caught up in Gaybos funeral,

200 jobs goin at RTE...i don't think covering the funeral is the best use of licence fees tbh.

Probably the best ratings it'll see for a long time. It's broke because it thinks mediocre (at best) presenters like Joe Duffy, Ryan Tubridy, Ray Darcy, Pat (the plank) Kenny, etc are stars and pays them accordingly.

First mass I've virtually attended in many a year.

Tubbers on 495k per year,self employed contractor..much the same as the rest of the "stars"
Even if he took a 30% cut he'd still be on nearly 350k....200k more than he should be on....average wage for the normals in RTE is 72k!!.....where do i sign?

What would happen to Bohemians Football Club if it decided to pay it's players the same as Tottenham Hotspur players?

I've no idea but Dalyer might have an opinion,
But i'm not forced by means of an annual fee to support Bohs.

It's hard to justify a licence fee in this day and age. In years gone by it could be used to promote public service broadcasting and/or censor content to exclude content Govt doesn't consider to be in the public interest but these days anyone can broadcast anything they want on the internet and there's no shortage of what one might consider to be public service content such as news and current affairs coverage and debate.

It has been said that RTE has bern the mouthpiece for government spin forever although i did read yesterday that presenter Will Leahy from RTE Gold did say that they were using very expensive technology to broadcast and because of the platform they use they're not included in the JNLR figures.

I heard on the wireless that RTE doesn't get paid by Sky for it's content... so why aren't the RTE channels FTA on the Sky platform? It seems they have all the negotiating skills of someone with extremely poor negotiating skills.
