BBC and the Irish Press
« on: March 11, 2023, 12:03:22 pm »
Just looking at the Fallout at the BBC over Liniker .Could it lead to the closing down of the BBC ?The government would love that Privatize all TV stations they are selling off Channel 4 .

Anybody remember it was the censorship of One Journalist and the support of others that Closed Down the Irish Press .


There are huge Freedom of Speech issues in all of this .If you work for a Company can they censure what you say outside your work hours or what you stand for .

George Orwell Strikes Again BIG BROTHER is a reference book not a novel .GET A GUN .

Coola The Conservatives might just be looking for a reason .Dont be surprised if the BBC is off the Air this week or No live broadcasts only the news ....I remember this I was thinking of becoming a Journalist at the time .The final issue of the Irish Press and Evening Press was on Thursday, 25 May 1995. The newspapers closed ostensibly because of a bizarre industrial dispute over the sacking of the group business editor, Colm Rapple,

The real reason the Irish Press Closed and with hindsight the writing was on the wall .Fine Fail  support was dwindling the Press was a FF Propaganda arm bit like An Poblacht is for the Shinners .Britain is Broken BBC should be Stiff Upper lip Tory in its view like it always was but now Drag Queens and non White Presenters no longer represent the Old BBC image of Britain .Tory government thinking why hit the People with a licence fee to subsadize a TV station that no longer does our bidding .They might do what our Government want to do and bring in a Digital licence instead .For homes using Digital media like TV,Computer or Mobile Phones .Unlike November 1961 when RTE came on line we have multi options for entertainment so why subsidise RTE .

Dont know if you have noticed ALL the Radio stations are now interjecting with a Cupla FUKKLES promoting Irish Language .That is probably where the new Digital Licence will go .To every Radio or TV station as long as they have a certain Irish Content including Language .Its even happening in the Dail watch how many TD switch between English and Irish when given speaking time .

The Irish Language thing is a 2-week promo to coincide with Paddy's week.

Re the BBC, the protest is spreading.  Lots of other sports journalists have pulled their services for the weekend.
