'Whatever you say , say nothing...'

(Self-)Censorship in RTE .

It appears that - whatever the issue - you can depend on RTE to leave you guessing...
Oppose censorship - Saturday 1st December 2007.
Oppose censorship - Saturday 1st December 2007.

Hi !

An anti-censorship picket will be held on the RTE Studios in Donnybrook, Dublin , on Saturday December 1st , 2007 , from 12 Noon to 1.30pm .
As a publicly-funded institution , RTE leaves a lot to be desired : the coverage it provides could be said to be based on the political 'prevailing winds' of the day . It has consistently and spectacularly failed to either report on what it apparently views as 'delicate' issues or will cover same in a light which is favourable to its own administration and the administration-of-the-day in Leinster House .
Regardless of the importance of the issue - whether it concerns the political situation in the north-east of this isle * , the 'Shell To Sea' issue** or the State Health Service (or lack of same) *** , RTE , it seems , will do its utmost to spare the blushes of its political colleagues and part-paymasters in Kildare Street .
With this in mind , an anti-censorship picket will be placed on the RTE Studios in Donnybrook , Dublin , on Saturday 1st December 2007 , between the hours of 12 Noon and 1.30pm . If you can't make it on the day , check-back here on this thread on the following day where I will publish a piece on how the picket went . Just don't expect it to be covered on RTE.....

Thanks ,

Sharon.
