Fine people all of them, but here’s the thing. I’ve heard each one of them so many times on panel discussions, talking about everything from the latest euro-crisis to the mysteries of twitter, that I can pretty much predict their opinions on the topic of your choice. And yet I know that by the end of the week, I’ll have heard at least half of those voices again, some several times, sharing their worldview with Mary Wilson or George Hook or Pat Kenny.
And every time they share their now-predictable worldviews, they do a little bit to limit everyone else’s worldview too.
Wouldn’t it be nice if the researchers working for RTÉ, Newstalk and Todayfm tried to get through one week without any of them, and let us hear a few fresh voices on the airwaves.
