Bríd Smith TD on funding commercial radio from the public purse

DENNIS O BRIEN’s hard neck is astounding. He’s LOOKING FOR OUR MONEY again, this time to help fund his radio stations. Fm106 and Newstalk (his stations) made a big pitch to TDs to get a recent Fianna Fáil motion passed, that would give the stations PUBLIC MONEY to include news and current affairs on their programmes. I spoke about this in Dáil. That was on Thursday. Then on Friday – JOY! The news of his failed court case !!. Maybe he’ll set up a Go Fund Me account!!
