RTÉ’s Ray D’Arcy Show entirely one-sided on abortion

In June 2015, Ray D’Arcy interviewed Amnesty Ireland Executive Director Colm O Gorman on abortion. The 25 minute interview was unbelievably biased in pushing for more wide-ranging abortion in Ireland with the presenter himself joining in with his own personal opinions on the issue. In upholding a complaint from a member of the public about this particular programme, the BAI said that listeners “would have reasonably concluded that the presenter endorsed the views of his interviewee and was articulating a partisan position.”

Biased interviews like this are par for the course on RTÉ with presenters faithfully parroting the speaking notes of the abortion lobby while totally blanking all pro-life perspectives.
