RTE is our version of the BBC/ PBS. It’s supposed to be an objective TVchannel, which of course it is not. It frequently lies about conservatives, Catholics, prolifers, and any cause to the right of the center, no more so than when it comes to American politics. If you ever come to Ireland and wonder why there is such bewilderment by general Irish people towards Republicans keep in mind this is where the majority of normies get their news from.
RTE News is no exception to this as the primary news output of RTE. They despise Trump and most Republicans. They fawn over Democrats and love to play to the stupid angle: Democrats good Republicans bad. Keep in mind they get their marching orders not from the Irish state but are obsessed with following the bandwagon of liberal outlets. Today RTE has been celebrating Trump’s departure and Biden’s win. They, like all your news outlets, never told the Irish people about the dark side of Biden and all his nefarious slimy actions over the years, instead of focusing on the Irish-American connection. Harris too got a pass on the whole allowing innocent people to stay in jail, focusing instead on her “black” heritage. Keeping that in mind, RTE probably should have looked into who they invited on their show, as you can see from the clip.
RTE invited one James Conner of Republicans Overseas to their inauguration coverage and boy did they mess up. According to another discredited Irish news site “The Journal” James called Joe Biden and Kamala Harris “two frauds” and falsely claimed one was “a bona fide criminal.” James is a Marine, a Trump supporter, and a (bleeping) legend (after this).
Many on the right here are laughing. I’ve been laughing at this. It’s been a bleak day but this was funny. The truth is funny. Some think this was RTE’s attempt to discredit Republicans but I disagree. This was accidentally the truth. Something RTE never has on American politics. It’s not abuse, after all, if it’s true.
