RTE promote an official anti- FF agenda.

The last minute of tonights frontline [20 sept 10] displayed a naked and scurillous attack on Brian Cowan and the Fianna Fail party.

It was presented in the format of scrap saturday without the humour.

RTE are going seriously political and anti Fianna Fail.
Is this what licence payers pay a licence for?

RT News: The Frontline

Part 3.So called comedy sketch.
In reality a vicious,unfunny & personalized attack on Brian Cowan & the FF party.

Amongst other gems, it proclaimed Fianna Fail as 'The Publican' Party. Definitely brave if not too funny.

This was way over the line.

The Frontline is billed as a serious current affairs show, and the attack was on a political party, not the Government. There's a huge difference.

Somebody really fukked up in this.

The state funded broadcastor at the end of the frontline programe has exhibited a partisan attack on a specific poltical party ie Fianna Fail.

Comics were hired to lampoon & viciously satarize a specific political party.

Is RTE now being run by politically motivated scum whose agenda is to destroy a specific political party.?

What has happened to impartiality.

Hiding behind the Green Flag only lasted so long.

FF colours shine through in the end. Cheerio.

About time they did. They spent too long on their knees in front of the party.

It's a longshot but maybe the signal was hacked. Maybe someone inside RTE included it without permission.

About time.

The game is up. Run and hide, because it will only get worse.

tWas a little bit funny.
It might have been funny if they were going at the government but they were not.

The attack was directed at an identifiable political party.

If the Labour party or FG were singled out as a party for that kind of treatment there would be uproar.

All previous rte lampooning/satire etc was directed at the government.
Now they have chosen to go after a political party.

Is there any control exercised on these scumbags in RTE?

The only way this benifits FF is that if it somewhat distracts attention from the content of the program itself. There were some good points made by some members of the audience and its clear people's anger is now starting to show. Conor Lenihan made a complete gob************************e of himself attacking McWilliams, and rightly got called on it. .

Im still not too sure if this was an actual RTE idea. Its clearly anti-FF, but being honest, its reached a point where this is not really a bad thing-their clearly not fit to run the country.

I find it pretty funny that this is one of the first times I've noticed something even approaching aggressive criticism of FF on RTE and impartiality is being invoked...
I also thought it was pretty funny, especially in the context of comedy/satire on RTE...
