Here’s How.

The current affairs podcast hosted by journalist William Campbell (above) looks at the relationship between RTÉ and AA Roadwatch.

It’s complicated.

William writes:

Do RTÉ adhere to their own rules?

If you have mates in Montrose, can you get soft coverage and ride roughshod over the rules governing balance and fairness on our national broadcaster?

The AA’s Conor Faughnan, Ireland’s most visible industry lobbyist has spectacular access to the RTÉ airwaves.

Is this connected to the AA paying for the staff and studios to supply AA Roadwatch traffic bulletins for RTÉ radio?

And don’t the rules prohibit registered lobbyists from sponsoring programmes anyway?

William writes:

Labour lost 30 of their 37 TDs in the 2016 election, and on current opinion poll figures they face wipe-out at local council level in 2019. I tackle Aodhán about his record in government and his party’s prospect for the future….

Recently the Here’s How podcast talked to veteran British feminist Linda Bellos – who does not regard transwomen as ‘real’ women – about how she was ‘deplatformed’ from speaking at Cambridge university.

In this edition, I interview Natalie Parrott (of the hugely creative ContraPoints channel) to get the trans view on deplatforming, gender recognition, free speech, and gender transition for children….

Host William Campbell (above left) meets the Iona Institute’s David Quinn (left).

William writes:

With the Repeal the 8th campaign in full swing, it’s time to look back at the claims made by campaigners in previous referendums.

I ask David Quinn of the Iona Institute whether he still stands over the claims he made during the Marriage Equality campaign including this one: “Should the referendum pass, a same-sex couple could demand a right to marry in a church … In Denmark, we have already seen that the Lutheran Church, a State Church admittedly, has been forced to conduct same-sex weddings.”
