RTE is invaluable part of our society
Yesterday, a letter writer described programming on RTE as "the same old boring stuff". I think this conclusion of our national broadcaster is a little unfair.
RTE has the difficulty of trying to please audiences ranging from an infant to a pensioner and everybody in between. No other channel really attempts to do this as they usually focus on their target audience and ignore the rest.
In my opinion RTE does a great job of diversifying its programming to satisfy the viewing needs of the Irish people.
