‘Planned And Orchestrated’




From top: RTÉ studios; Paul Reynolds; allegation of complicity between RTÉ and Garda HQ

An allegation of collusion between Garda HQ and RTÉ is among the terms of reference (see below) of the commission of investigation into the smearing of garda whistleblower Maurice McCabe.

On the morning of Monday, May 9, 2016, RTÉ crime correspondent Paul Reynolds appeared on Morning Ireland to reveal details of the then as yet unpublished O’Higgins report.

Mr Reynolds’ lengthy summation of the findings of the report  was markedly sympathetic to the Gardaí and, at times, contemptuous toward Sgt McCabe.

That report can be heard here (scroll down).

The O’Higgins Report, which was subsequently published on Wednesday, May 11, 2016, can be read here

    Not wanting to defend RTÉ too much, that sounds more like GHQ rolled out their media lapdogs to do their dirty work for them. I don’t think I’ve heard Reynolds or Paul ‘backsplash’ Williams say anything about the gardaí that doesn’t sound like it was written by the gardaí.

      What I mean to say is, RTE’s problem is that they have rubbish journalists who are friends with the very people they are meant to be reporting on and lack any sort balls to do some decent investigative work. Which is a major failing on RTEs part.

        Not meaning to attack you but in this case RTÉ’s problem is our problem as they allegedly provide a public service which we pay for through mandatory license

    Reynolds is a disgrace to journalism. He just spouts verbatim what the Gardai press office tell him to!

      They all do that. I mean all the RTÉ cocks.

      Just interview each other on a loop.

      It’s fun watching them cover it this morning. Finally be free of them soon once the next government gets in.

    If one was to dig a little deeper they’d find a relation of Reynolds who works in the radio dept and who has been reprimanded over anger and taxi usage issues in the past…

    if this is what the commissioner is up to imagine what everyone beneath her is up to?? never trust a guard

  5. Truth in the News

    RTE should act at once and have Reynolds step aside while investigation is taking place
    as to the Garda Commissioner, is it not time she was removed along with some of the rest
    of them with the brass necks and buckles. It was bad when Garvey was there, its now worse
