    What do you mean by that? I just listened to that interview.

    Is nobody allowed question a FGer without this pile on Brendi?

    Nobody tore anything in that interview.

    Francie, it is unbelievable that Stanley is still chair of the PAC given his record.

    Unbelievable.

    How can the electorate have any confidence in how things are done if this is not sorted.

    Brendi...it's unbelievable you don't know what forum you are in.

    This is the radio forum. You listened to the same interview I did and your impression of a very respectful well done interview was that the FG rep 'tore' Cormac a new one'.

    She didn't, she answered his questions that he has a duty, as a good broadcaster, to ask.
    It was a good interview.

    Patwell, should never be let near a microphone.


  • Registered Users Posts: 832 ✭✭✭Nevin Parsnipp


    Who let that stumblebum on air to speak about the pay rise for the Judiciary ?

    Surely the beaks have enough brass to get a competent speaker on air......not the train wreck we just heard...

    I don't like the regular pleas with listeners to text in about this, that, and the other. The show seems to be aping Newstalk's current affairs programmes in that regard. If I listen in, I want to hear breaking news and informed opinion, not silly and ignorant comments from Joe (or Joanne) Soap. Still, the show is better than its rivals.

    It's childish and lowest common denominator. But each to their own

    The premier news show on radio on the national broadcaster asking listeners to text in their views, vox pops, fluff pieces, the latest campaign dressed up as news... This should not be part of a serious news programme imv
    When I listen to drivetime I just want the news, the facts, whats happening here and in the wider world, everything is just going downhill nowadays till the common denominator is reached

    All radio shows do this now, I agree to an extent regarding reading out texts and vox pop but I like the bit of banter all the same

    Not forced strained laughter especially from O’hEadhra.....listen to the Today show BBC Radio 4 to learn how to do it.

    Spontaneous, natural, not forced or scripted in.

    O'hEadhra sounds like Philip Bouncher-Hayes long lost son pre puberty

    Got a bit of a belt of the pompous stick it seems at birth, in fairness.

    Good spot.

    Has "The Look" though in fairness if you look at the promo pic.

    Jacket and black (Armani?) Tee so beloved of those who like to put themselves forward as young enough to wear that gear.

    Most of them are not ...someone should have a word with Cormac....he should try the "preppy" look...jacket /jeans and big college scarf, so favoured by Tubs and Darcy.

    Or maybe a disheveled "I'm not really a serious boring person" look as favoured by D McCullagh.

    Didn't get enough belts with it. An annoying little pr##k. Can't listen to him or SM. Terrible presenters altogether

    You’re very negative

    Can you find any positives with the presentation ?


  • Registered Users Posts: 25,420 ✭✭✭✭sligojoek


    I've only been listening to this the last few weeks. I'd agree there's a lot of fluffy stuff on what should be a serious show. Two things spring to mind. A discussion on the most played tunes on Spotify and some blogger, or something, going on about box sets she watched on Netflix. That sort of stuff would be more suited to Darcy or Tubridy. But they're both too busy interviewing the dying and the bereaved.

    Mcinerney fairly gave it to Helen mcentee this evening


  • Registered Users Posts: 25,420 ✭✭✭✭sligojoek


    Yeah i heard that. Helen McEntee spouting spin doctor lines over and over again. I don't think Sarah got anything out of her by the end though.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,729 ✭✭✭ShamNNspace


    Im ready to give up on it, getting too hard to tell the dancer from the dance these days

    Unreal, mcentee was like one of those automated live chat boxes you get when you have an IT problem, wheeled out pre agreed lines, I know there’s a lot made of her being a young woman in a key ministerial position but I can’t see that she offers up much, a bland die hard fine gaeler who never operated outside of the FG bubble

    She really is the most boring person in the Dail.

    McInerney is one ignorant person.

    Won’t let Dara O’Brien finish any response that might show housing in good light.

    When dealing with SF she is as quiet as a mouse.

    O’Brien is a patient person, I know what I’d tell her to do.
