Miriam O'Callaghan, a broadcaster at Ireland's leftist atheistic State television station RTE, has this week warned of a drop in morale at the station.
Did diddums get upset because diddums attempts to falsely frame a priest for child rape exploded in diddums face!
RTE is indeed experiencing some unaccustumed public criticism, due to its documentarians' recent attempts to destroy a priest with invented allegations of child rape.
RTE got off lightly in this matter.
A small fine was paid to the priest.
A few hundred grand.
Corrupt kleptocratic Fianna Fail scoundrels like Monica Leech and Donal Kinsella don't even get out of bed for a hundred grand. They got millions for libel courtesy of Judge Eamon De Valera, a descendent of the founder of Fianna Fail, in circumstances where no libel had been committed at all. No libel at all. Except by themselves.
But I digress.
The money paid by RTE to the priest it tried to destroy came from the tax payer.
As did the legal costs.
And the costs of filming the documentary which was intended to cause the priest's suicide.
The RTE journalists who conspired to murder this priest by the vitiation of his reputation, got off scot free.
One of em has been given a high profile job in CNN.
I kid you not.
Low morale indeed.
They're laughing all the way to the State funded bank.
But the great Miriam O'Callaghan says morale at RTE is low.
I suppose we must believe her.
Still the half million dollar salaries and half million dollar travelling expenses and half million dollar pension contributions that she and her atheistic anti Catholic friends draw every year from the public purse at RTE, will no doubt help this shower of Marxian scum to perk up a bit.
Low morale is such hardship isn't it.
But not half as serious as low morals which is something RTE staff also suffer from en mass.
Miriam O'Callaghan notes that morale at the station has dropped even further following criticisms of Presidential election coverage a few months ago.
Now here's the thing.
In its Presidential coverage I personally don't believe RTE did anything wrong.
Here's what happened.
The seven Presidential candidates were guests on a programme hosted by atheistic anti Catholic Pat Kenny.
One of the candidates Sean Gallagher was styling himself an Independent.
He was in fact a ringer, a sleeper candidate, for Ireland's near defunct kleptocratic Fianna Fail Party.
He had formerly been a bag man for Fianna Fail, channelling funds from corrupt donors to that quinessentially corrupt and corrupting Party.
During the programme Pat Kenny read out a comment from the internet.
The comment purported to have been written by a donor of funds to Fianna Fail.
The comment alleged that candidate Sean Gallagher had in the past received money for Fianna Fail from the supposed writer of the comment.
Pat Kenny later read out a statement from the internet that the person who had placed the comment would be appearing at a press conference the following day.
At this point in the programme Sean Gallagher admitted that he may at some stage have received a brown envelope from someone.
Sean Gallagher claimed he did not know what was in the envelope.
This exchange is now credited with costing Sean Gallagher the Presidency.
As indeed it should have.
A subsequent enquiry into the incident, decided that the internet comments had been planted and that Pat Kenny's presentation of them on air without verification was improper.
I do not agree that the odious Pat Kenny or his programme staff did anything wrong in the matter.
I do not agree that the trivial vicissitudes of a Fianna Fail bagman's political failure should be the source of any censure for RTE whatsoever.
I suggest that in this instance, Sean Gallagher should have been quite capable of saying to Pat Kenny: "I don't care if there's a press conference. I never received money from anyone. I am not a bagman for Fianna Fail."
He wasn't capable of saying this.
The internet comment was in my view a gambit by Sean Gallagher's political rivals in Sinn Fein, whose candidate I voted for in the Presidential election.
But the gambit could not have worked unless Sean Gallagher was himself a thoroughgoing scoundrel.
I say it again.
RTE did nothing wrong in the Gallagher affair.
The only scandal relating to RTE, that any of us should be worrying about, is RTE's forty year attempt to destroy the Catholic Church in Ireland.
I note that Eoin Harris, a former Marxist and sometime Senator, now more well known as an anti Catholic contributor at Independent Newspapers, has recently read this blog and has chosen to confirm my assertion that RTE's news output is tainted by Marxian control.
Mr Harris claims to have known several senior RTE news figures who he asserts were Marxists like he was in their youth.
Unlike him, they never renounced their atheistic creed.
This is the most high profile confirmation of what I have been saying about RTE for several decades.
It is the most enduring media scandal in Irish public life that the citizenry have been compelled by law to finance a television station which for forty years was attempting to subvert their Church, their Culture and their Nation.
Interestingly enough, ageing Maoist Vincent Brown, famous for riding menally ill pop singer Sinead O'Connor, has today claimed that RTE suffers from Right wing bias.
Right wing bias, Vincent.
We are dealing with the people of the lie.
That's what they are.
Brown et al.
(Particularly Al. I hate him.)
Several years ago, I sat beside an RTE producer on a flight from Italy.
I said to her: "You people are a shower of Bolshevicks."
She replied: "Ah James it was never that bad. One group had control of News. But another group had control of documentaries. And they couldn't stand each other."
You understand this bold readers!
She was openly admitting that Marxist Leninists were running News progammes in RTE and she was at the same time claiming that the public interest at RTE had been protected by a group of Trotskyite Maoists running documentaries.
I kid you not.
Anyhoo noble travellers of the internet, I'm due for tea at the Archbishop of Dublin's Palace, so I've got to rush.
The ranting you've just read, ensued from seeing Miriam O'Callaghan showboating in public about the drop in journalistic morale over scandals at RTE.
But the scandal Miriam O'Callaghan should be most concerned about is the scandal directly pertaining to herself and her husband Snodgrass.
A few years ago, she was being paid hundreds of thousands of dollars a year as a permanent high profile presenter at RTE.
At one and the same time, she was receiving a salary from a private company which was making programmes for RTE starring her and which was being paid for those programmes by RTE.
The company which was making those programmes was run by her husband.
I ask the question.
Just how many wage packets does the O'Callaghan family need to gouge every week from public funds, ie from the money I am compelled by law to pay RTE for the privilege of daring to have a TV in my house?
The scandal doesn't end there.
Miriam O'Callaghan's husband has since been given a job at RTE as Programme Commissioner.
Did diddums get a jobbums at wife-ums television station!
Talking about the O'Callaghans multiple jobs at RTE is risky business.
The brace and courageous and discerning Alive Catholic newspaper tried to bring some of this into the public domain a few years ago and had to publish a retraction, after Miriam O'Callaghan insisted they had implied some wrong doing on the part of herself and her husband.
Alive had stated the facts but without stressing that the timeframe of her husbands hiring as Programme Commissioner left Miriam O'Callaghan with some plausible deniability in terms of the sneaking suspicion that I had entertained, that her indepenent programmes were being commissioned by her own husband.
Couldn't happen of course.
Such behaviour would be positively scandalous.
Ah the scum, the scum, scummy, scum,. scum.
I don't want to go casting no aspoyshuns.
Keep well beautiful friends.
I'll let you know tomorrow how I got on with Archie.
