RTÉ’s broadcasting standards
Sir, – Regarding “RTÉ says satirical sketch did not comply with rules” (News, January, 8th), am I correct in my understanding that it amounts to a branch of RTÉ telling RTÉ that an RTÉ sketch broke RTÉ’s own standards and regulations?
Furthermore, after initially only placing a warning online that the sketch may cause offence, RTÉ has now convinced RTÉ to remove it from the player altogether.
Now that is definitely funnier than the original sketch! – Yours, etc,
Sir, – What does RTÉ have to apologise for? Has anyone heard of satire? – Yours, etc,
