I find he has lost the run of himself - as he did when had to declare bankruptcy.

It's impossible to listen to his dogmatic views - now he's on to spending FF and FG's money on an electoion. Does he remember his own experience? Does he listen to himself as he smirks so "full-of-myself" attitude?

As further piece of info - is Matt Cooper breathing down his neck in the arrogance stakes?

Whatever little justification Yates might have for arrogance, Cooper has absolutely none. I find Cooper to be an obnoxious, sneering, gobshíte.

Yates is quite proud of cheating the state. He buggered off to Wales, to avoid paying money he owed here!
Yates concern for those he owed money to? Not a hint of guilt.. ************************ em, the Yates way..
Ah shure it's all a laugh, as long as Ivan is OK who gives a ************************?

Well you shouldn't. Yates is up there with Bertie, Charlie, Liam Lawlor, Ray Burke to name but a few of the scoundrels who have screwed our country at every opportunity! Ask Ivan how his employees did when he buggered off to Wales?
Ask Ivan how many pensions he's now getting from US, the state? Is he sharing any of this "FREE" money with any of his ex employees?

If you don't like Yates, or any other talking head, simply choose not to listen to or read the content that he delivers.

If fewer people consumed what these talking heads put out, they'd be out of business in no time.

It's not a case of just "not" liking him. He is in receipt of a few pensions from us! We are giving him our money, for nothing, he sure as hell hasn't earned any of it.

I agree.
It is extremely frustrating that politicians chose to award themselves huge pay awards and pension entitlements.

But ultimately we are to blame for allowing this to happen. We elect them after all.

The current bunch have awarded themselves wages increases and higher remuneration. Of course there was barely a whimper of protest from us

I guess he at least puts himself in the line of fire and sucks it up when he gets a slap.
Unlike the protected ,cosseted 'saints' at RTE.
Total abuse/misuse of the word 'journalism' happening in front of our eyes .
Paid for by us!

Yates is saving Newstalk. He knows that he's in the entertainment business and that's what he delivers.

Bollix, if newstalk are depending on Yates to save them, they are seriously screwed.. Yates is a "not very good" Shock jock. He rants a lot, but says shag all?
The big shows on newstalk, are Off the Ball, Moncrieff, PK and maybe the morning show. Yates could disappear tomorrow and NO ONE would bat an eyelid..

Being a journo is tough these days.
Some of the worst posters on p.ie can match them , on a good day.
Or even an average one.

You can actually watch RTEs highest paid female 'journalist' literally 'going through the motions' standing in for Sean O Rourke at the moment.
Never engaged with the matter at hand ,or the person she is purportedly 'speaking to', just cuing up various audio clips ,going through highly rehearsed questions,gesturing to studio underlings etc.
Tedious but eye opening to observe.

https://www.newstalk.com/Newstalk-achieves-record-weekly-audience-of-764000-listeners-in-latest-JNLR

Key figures for Newstalk programmes:

Newstalk Breakfast - Reach 126,000 (Up 7,000 book-on-book, Up 10,000 year-on-year)
Pat Kenny - Reach 148,000 (Up 5,000 book-on-book, no change year-on-year)
Lunchtime Live - Reach 99,000 (No Change book-on-book, up 2,000 year-on-year)
Moncrieff - Reach 83,000 (Up 1,000 book-on-book, up 7,000 year-on-year)
Hard Shoulder - Reach 145,000 (Up 6,000 book-on-book, up 15,000 year-on-year)
Off The Ball - Reach 54,000 (Down 1,000 book-on-book, up 4,000 year-on-year)

Then if you further compare those figures with the slots for the competition, your figures fall even further apart.
