Questions and Answers
On 19 November last we published an article which referred to a broadcast of RTE's Questions and Answers on 20 October 2008.
It has been pointed out to us that we may have incorrectly suggested that the program me makers were aware, prior to broadcasting, that an audience member was connected to Sinn Fein and that, furthermore, notwithstanding disruption caused by that same audience member, he was "..subsequently entertained in RTE's Green Room hospitality centre" by virtue of his connections to Sinn Fein. We are glad to clarify that RTE were not, prior to broadcast, aware of the man's political affiliation; nor did he receive any preferential treatment as a result of such affiliation. We accept that Questions and Answers was not "always accused of a Sinn Fein bias".
