Dáil Eireann at the Convention Centre.
“We have an arm of the government practically going out to Dublin Airport to burn witches live on air. I’m talking about RTÉ. It’s an absolute disgrace. It is oppressive and it is driving anxiety in this state what RTÉ is doing.
“There are massive problems with free media in Ireland.The Irish Times have their hand out looking for money from the government. God Knows they’re entitled to it, they’ve been doing your bidding for a year.
“But where is the free media to come from if the only source – I’m not talking about all media – but the primary source of income is the Department of Health, is the government?
“Of course they [RTE, Irish Times] are doing the government’s bidding, of course they’re driving the narrative, of course they are attacking people who question what is going on.
“It is oppressive and it is damaging the fabric of our society.”
Independent TD for Clare Michael McNamara
