Are BBC as bad with a London bias, I wonder?


Rupert Murdoch’s News UK is headquartered in London. It owns The Wireless Group, headquartered in Belfast which includes 96FM.

The Irish Times in Dublin owns The Irish Examiner and The Evening Echo.

RTÉ, headquartered in Dublin, owns RTÉ1, RTÉ2, Raidio Na Gaeltachta and Lyric FM.

TG4 is headquartered in Galway.

Virgin Media, owned by US based Liberty Global is headquartered in Eastpoint Business Park in Dublin, with its main operations in Ballymount, also in Dublin.

Landmark Media which was acquired by The Irish Times owned a stake in Red FM, but I’m unsure of how much.

Communicorp headquartered in Dublin owns Newstalk and Today FM




Classic Hits 4FM is owned by Bay Media Limited, headquartered in Dublin

RTE know very little about modern Ireland and its people. This is reflected in their out of touch and out of date attempts at programming.

Personally I think it is time to scrap RTE as it is beyond redemption. The country needs a new national broadcaster that has the trust of the Irish people and one that represents them. RTE fails completely!

RTE is a bad joke! In terms of their programme content, they are extremely limited and old fashioned. They are a laughing stock in European terms.
