499. RTE and the Apology with Hugh O’Connell

We were joined in The Tortoise Shack by Political Correspondent with the Irish Independent, Hugh O’Connell, to talk about the how and why (wrongly) RTE apologised to Finance Minister, Paschal Donohoe, for a mild historical criticism of Fine Gael and children’s shoes.

We also talk about the role of the Pol Corr and its pipeline to Govt Advisor roles, the Leinster House Bubble, the state of play in Irish politics today and how healthier journalism means healthier democracy.
