'THAT man can just ruin your reputation." Future President Michael D Higgins' nervous comment to me about a decade ago following an appearance on Vincent Browne's old RTE radio show, where he was mischievously harassed by the presenter, often puzzled me.
I have never really taken Browne that seriously. His shows tend to be as much about pantomime as pragmatism.
The image of the searching journalist haranguing guests for the answers is at odds with the reality of a man who can't handle being challenged himself.
