Donegal TD Says RTE are still in ‘covering mode’

RTÉ is still in covering mode, according to a Donegal TD.


Pearse Doherty says nobody is satisfied with the statement issued by the state broadcaster yesterday, which said the former director general Dee Forbes was the only member of the Executive Board, who had all the information to know Ryan Tubridy’s earnings.


This afternoon TDs and Senators will question RTÉ representatives on the undisclosed payments at an Oireachtas Media Committee.


The Sinn Féin’s Finance and Public Expenditure spokesperson says the Grant Thornton report states half of the Executive Board had knowledge of a second contract.
