We're none the wiser on Ganley after hatchet job

RTE's Prime Time on Thursday night purported to be a profile of Declan Ganley, the founder of Libertas and irritant of the European body politic. Instead, it broadcast an elegantly produced hatchet job that failed to shed light on his ambitions, his motivations or, more crucially, the source of his political movement's funding.

At the very start of the programme, Miriam O'Callaghan described Ganley as an enigma, and asked whether his "incredible life story actually stacked up". There were, she said, more questions than answers, and then Prime Time proceeded to deliver yet more questions -- some of very dubious quality -- and very few answers.
