Marian Finucane and Mick Wallace discussed the ongoing scandals in the Gardai for about twenty minutes yesterday (Saturday).
Not once during the discussion was the word ‘corruption’ mentioned, political or otherwise. This is despite the fact that it is political corruption that lies at the heart of practically every scandal over the last five decades.
Not once was Wallace asked how he could reconcile describing (rightly) Dail Eireann as a sham and a joke for so long as Shatter remained in his position while Wallace himself occupies the exact same position of democratic unacceptability.
Instead the extremely conservative Marian Finucane reflecting the extremely conservative and careful RTE asked such penetrating questions as:
What was it that got your gander up so strongly?
Was it a good week for you?
