They would say that, wouldn't they, will be the response of many to a presentation made recently by Fianna Fail to the Director General of RTE, Noel Curran, and the Managing Director of News, Ed Mulhall (on leave).
On this occasion, however, as it readjusts to a more lowly status, Fianna Fail would seem to have a point, specifically that in the total 16 months either side of the General Election, RTE News & Current Affairs has shown a "bias" in favour of Labour and Sinn Fein.
Down the years, it has been the cry of all political parties in opposition, of course: if only we could get our message across, they seem to believe, the people would come to love us more.
