PROOF, if it were needed, that our broadcast media is infested with leftie liberals came by way of a Broadcasting Complaints Commission decision read out immediately prior to an edition of Liveline last week.
The summary of the decision, given against an edition of Liveline hosted by stand-in Evelyn O'Rourke, found that RTE "did not ensure that adequate representation was given to both sides" of a full-length programme on the rights and wrongs of homosexual parenting and fostering.
In effect, the commission found that RTE had put on a phalanx of callers irate with journalist Hermann Kelly, who had written an article critical of homosexuality as it relates to the hot-button topic of marriage, adoption and fostering.
