    Tuned into Drivetime for the first time in ages.


    It's really gone down hill.

    Have to agree.... very tabloid .... people like John Cooke feeding ‘punters’ with open goals....lookit.... we can see through that.

    Getting more like ‘Heat’ every day....

    Nah.....

    You'd swear Ireland won the World Cup last night the way these two f**king goofballs are giggling and laughing here at some segment about shorts.

    Not a good direction to take Bee, not suitable for a main evening anchor news programme.

    Complete copy of Newstalk, Studio presenters ‘joshing’ each other, and about as convincing as a wet night in Moyvalley.

    You can’t pull stuff like this off with any style.... stupid and puerile.

    That Weasel Heyes on defending the banks again!

    Is there something wrong with that??

    Twitter has lit up and Hayes is trending. Seems he got 'skewered' by Sarah. Looking forward to a listen back.

    Didn't hear it...and maybe he did...but I wouldn't be relying on the latest Twitter trends as a reliable source.

    ‘Up the Ra’ man is incoming .....

    Good bit of broadcasting on the Contact Tracing debacle - discuss the problem with those concerned about it then feature somewhere where it is working properly.


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,325 ✭✭✭✭Brendan Bendar


    Looks like John Cooke is filling in for the DoomsdayDog.

    Desperately trying to dig up anyone prepared blame the Govt for the issue.

    Cooke piling on the blame implications as best he can, laying it on as thick as
    possible.

    Only hearing one side of the story, he’s trying to Jack this up even more now.


    Very unbalanced.

    I heard a promo for Drive Time today, the interview with Pearse Doherty.

    Did they pick that piece deliberately as it makes Pearse sound a bit like an idiot, very muddled and stumbling over his words.

    SF supporters will say it was edited in such a way as to contort his interview into incoherence.

    What would SF have done Pearse?

    We didn't really think about that.

    Leaders of the opposition :eek:

    Terrible show again, absolutely no international news, basically just filling the time with waffle and then over to Callan at 6:30 that lad is about as funny as a hole in the head


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,492 ✭✭✭Cole


    I thought the piece on the mother and baby homes legislation was good, but the rest was pretty poor...especially the movies/novels item...cringe

    Little or No International news is common across most of the current affairs shows on RTE at moment (arguably years)

    Sarah Mc should go back to Today @ and let the current airhead go to the evening show with Cormac.

    Bet she is being primed for the LLS and the greyhound/ lurcher ie Tubridy is off to other things.

    RTE management and producers need a kick in the goolies.

    In my opinion
      The quicker they get Tubridy off the LLS, where he is past his sell by date
      The quicker they can get Claire onto the LLS, where I think she’d do a good job
      The quicker they get Sarah back onto the Today programme

    the better

    Oh, and by all means let the DLB host the Toyshow, there’s no way I could see Claire Byrne even attempting that. And he’s done all that rehearsing already for it. And I hate to see a grown man cry.

    LOL. We think we know everything re TV and Radio, but since I am paying a license fee for both I can say that IMO RTE has lost the plot :pac:

    There is that truth, too!


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,492 ✭✭✭Cole


    Oh ffs Aifric O'Connell (had to Google her) having the 'banter' with the gang about who to dress up as for Halloween...the latest "merch"...like totes amazeballs goiys.

    Fcuking awful radio. Like a (bad) whacky breakfast show. Whoever's responsible for the new direction of the show should be fired...or at least moved to D'Arcy/Tubridy or some other such sh1te.

    Let’s see how Sarah handles this one with MLMCD

    One name check so far, no interruptions so far, vanilla interview so far.

    Second name check, no interruptions , complete free wheel.

    Third name check, fourth name check, no interruptions.

    First confrontation, all evidence accepted, ML speaking very slowly, ML not answering the only hard question Sarah threw.

    He hehheh..... jeez.


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,325 ✭✭✭✭Brendan Bendar


    Totally different tone of voice with Norma Foley.

    Strange..... very strange.


  • Registered Users Posts: 68,370 ✭✭✭✭FrancieBrady


    OMG another SF shill in RTE. :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,699 ✭✭✭ShamNNspace


    They've f**ked up the daily news programme with magazine pieces sure they might as well go the whole hog and f**k up the sports department as well while they're at it, 2 of the only things rte did well imo

    Cormac beating his head, fruitlessly, against a brick wall.


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,325 ✭✭✭✭Brendan Bendar

    In what way, a chara?


  • Registered Users Posts: 68,370 ✭✭✭✭FrancieBrady

    So much so that he let the public know that the FGer had refused to debate the issue with Louise O'Reilly.

    Got himself into quite the hoop did Burke.

    Burke was not for moving his position, come what may.

    Wouldn’t agree with that Francie, lad obviously copped on that O’Reilly would bully the presenter and like the old Vincent Browne tactics and it would turn out into two against one tag match.

    Francie, I think you are losing it a bit, nothing personal, but you seem to think that folk will walk into situations where the deck is stacked.

    Even a grunt like myself can see that given the set-up in RTE,gives the government rep no chance at all to put their points across.

    All you have to do is listen to Katie Hannon last Saturday.... completely lost control.

    Need to up your game. Only fools go in against the stacked deck.
