RTE's Drivetime

#1

Post by Del.Monte »

Can't believe I haven't started a thread on this show previously as Sarah McInerney is definitely one of my favourite presenters. That said, I really can't believe the way the show is following Newstalk down the tabloid route with one of today's prime topics - people getting upset by being asked "where are you from?"

I'm living in Ireland on and off for 56 years or so and I still get asked that question - anyone offended by the question should grow a thicker skin or fxxk off back to where they are from. Anyway, given the state that the country is in is this real newsworthy?

Oh ya, that program is gone to the dogs. Before it was news, analysis and probing questions for politicians. Now it's "Mary from Ballina texted in to say". One thing I really notice is they allow politicians from certain parties to waffle on and never challenge them on some clearly outlandish statements.

A lot of the time now I just turn it off.

The "fluid" continuity music on Drivetime also does my head in.
