DCC/Fyffes scandal – RTE still ignoring the story

Last Tuesday afternoon the High Court appointed an inspector to investigate the issues and circumstances surrounding the DCC/Fyffes scandal.

RTE made a very short report on the development on its Six One News (10th report) the same evening. There was no background information, no interviews with DCC/Fyffes officials, no interviews with state regulatory agencies, no in depth reporting of any kind. The development was not carried on RTEs Nine News and to my knowledge no other programme reported on the development.

In other words, RTE are continuing with their virtual news blackout on this very serious and important story. My question is simple – Why?
