…sick at the pathetic fawning interviews RTE has conducted in relation to Charles Haughey. Saturday View today was tantamount to this bullshit coverage I have watched and listened to over the last few days.
Vincent Browne has turned coat and now loves Haughey apparently.
But RTE are not alone. The Indo today made me feel even more sick. Pathetic. They gloss over the fact that no one turned up for the funeral too. Here’s some cringeworthy quotes:
Past Irish men and women and children from the four provinces – relatively few in number – come to pay their final respects.
Then the roof of the hearse, as measured and magisterial as the old Haughey when he would coast through rooms like Napoleon.
For Bertie Ahern did not come to bury Caesar. He came to praise him, and to ensure that the good he did would not be interred with his bones.
A radical reformer. A complex man, like WB Yeats.
Afterwards, Fr Eoghan walked over and hugged the Taoiseach. Caesar is dead. Long live Caesar.
Fucking pathetic. What unadultered and absolute bullshit.
More level headed coverage after I calm down.
