THE inquiries into the Fr Reynolds scandal are too restricted in their remit. The presidential election Frontline, which fell for a Sinn Fein agenda, shows that Reynolds was not a once-off.

We need a comprehensive review of the culture, received wisdoms and editorial practices of RTE news and current affairs.

For 30 years I tried to get the public to pay attention to the peculiar mind-set of RTE news; as a television producer in the 1980s, a columnist in the Sunday Times in the 1990s, and in the Sunday Independent since 2000.
