Eoghan Harris: Resignation of Montrose top two needed to rid RTE of rot
Last Sunday, the Minister for Communications, Pat Rabbitte, gave me a good plug on Marian Finucane's show: "Eoghan Harris is one of the best polemicists around."
This was both generous and a sign of Rabbitte's intellectual security.
Intellectual insecurity is the main mark of a politically motivated minority in Montrose. Those who secretly pull the strings on some programmes cannot cope with any challenge to their three core positions: softness on Sinn Fein, hardness on Israel, hatred of pluralist values. Hence their fear of hard polemicists like Kevin Myers or myself whom they keep off air.
