As you know if you’ve been following this blog (or pretty much any Irish media outlet) I believe the real story here is whether RTÉ bowed to political pressure and apologised for reporting the news on Tuesday’s Nine News.

Earlier in the same programme, finance minister Brian Lenihan was interviewed about the latest financial services row, the pension payments to Irish Nationwide boss Michael Fingleton.

Here’s what he says about 1.50 minutes into the RTÉ report on the story when he ‘warned the opposition to watch what they say’.

Remember, the world is watching us.’


The world is watching
