No I certainly wouldn't agree. I see no reason why so called "talent" should get such exorbitant salaries.That's a fair point there JD, far better to pay Premiership wages to Marian, Joe and Ryan than to try and allocate resources to providing succinct, digestable breakdown of the current situation....
Err, no.The resources available to RTÉ, let alone RTÉ online, is minicule compared to BBC Online (I visited them a year or so ago and they have well over 100 people alone working on their web content). Plus, presumably RTÉ have lost staff over the last 2 years as every other area of the Public Sector has.
Well when I was there I was told it was over 100. In any case whether it's 91 or around 100, it's still significantly less than RTÉ.
Indeed, but even with Marian and co. their overall budget is still miniscule when compared to the BBC.RTE chooses to spend its resources on different things.
