MUST READ: RTE didn’t report Water Charges Protest fully – it’s as bad as a North Korean broadcaster, writes Daniel Crown

Our state broadcaster, RTE, neglected to broadcast or report a full report on the supposed 100,000 person water charges protest yesterday.

The socialist party are the ringleaders in claiming it to be 100,000. The gardai said 30,000 and this journalist, who was there, believes the true figure lies somewhere in the middle. More like a 40-50,000 protest.

Even at the weaker end of a 40,000 protest, surely this is major news. TheLiberal.ie along with most other online Irish newspapers, both announced it would happen and reported on what actually did happen.

Our so-called state broadcaster is now ultra pro-governmemt. Obviously someone wasn’t allowed give the green light to a full report on television of the minions out squealing about another immoral tax being imposed by Enda Kenny’s self-serving government.

RTE blatantly have an agenda, that’s fine for a private entity – but this is a semi state company which poses as impartial! A tiny segment on television and a small piece on their website is all that’s proclaimed about the protest.

I was in China in 2005, their TV is ridiculously moderated. A news production did a segment on President George W Bush, and it appeared for just a split second until some rubbish advert was projected instead.

RTE is now on this level or a North Korean level. What on earth are we paying our tv license for?

TheLiberal.ie derives its name from the classical meaning of liberalism, we have never and will never pose as anything else.

We will however say this – right wing, left wing, no wing – our online newspaper stands with any water charges protest. We will proudly promote and report on any protest that helps remove this disgraceful, immoral and despicable tax.

Water is a human RIGHT – not a privilege. We urge the fight for free water to continue and our readers can rest assured, we will report the truth and facts, and not simply what Enda the traitor Kenny and his cohorts want you to hear.
