That’s not really convincing me that RTE is that good but that the others also failed. They used to have breaking news for this kind of this. All you need is two minute. You can use Twitter video.

All this proves that old media is dead. I got the information on twitter. And here.

Frst one that springs to mind in peacetime is La Fenice theatre in Venice .
Of course several monuments in Europe went up in flames during WW2.

There would be staff and security in there. Even out of hours.
The fire must have taken quite a hold before anyone could even start to deal with it.

I hope none of those vest morons were blocking the firemen. This is depressing.

BFM Tv Paris is great for breaking news. OK, if you understand French I suppose! Good visuals also. Well they are on the ground so to speak.
