The RTE News Thread

RTE News need to take a hard look at RTE News Now channel and decide whether they should keep this pretend 24 hour news channel or dump it in the trash can where it belongs.

It is still filled with simulcasts of Euronews, RTE Radio 1, RTE 1 current affairs and RTE 1 news bulletins, why the hell do they still bother.

Is this a case of RTE wanting to continue to look like a version of the BBC, with a news channel under their belt?

BBC NEWS CUTS

Putting Newsnight on BBC One at 9pm would be ratings suicide for BBC One. Pure disaster, as the lead in to the News at Ten would be minute.

When you are up against new dramas etc at 9pm on ITV and Channel 4, BBC One will not give over an hour prime time for news, and then News at Ten following it. This could make BBC One a news channel for 1 hour 45 minutes most nights. Madness.
