“It seemed to me that RTÉ’s fundamental failure was to allow this appetite for ‘edgy’, ground-breaking journalism to devour good journalistic practice and particularly editorial practice. It was failure above all of editorial control.”
Bryan Dobson on the Fr Kevin Reynolds affair.
GalwayGirl writes (edgily):
So noted newsreader Bryan Dobson had a lot to say yesterday about editorial standards at RTÉ. Well, he’d certainly be a leading expert on that topic… Maybe stick to reading other people’s scripts to introduce other people’s journalism. Still though – looks good in a suit…
