Ryan Tubridy Is A Disgrace
 
# 1 : Friday 18-9-2009 @ 23:13
 
 
I am so incensed by the conduct of Ryan Tubridy during his interview of Prof. Richard Dawkins tonight. The complete lack of respect shown by Ryan is quite frankly, a disgrace. Ryan needs to realise that even when he doesnt agree with a guests point of view, he should afford that guest due respect and fair and balanced treatment.

Ryan was deliberately inflammatory when trying to get Dawkins to equate God to the Easter bunny. Why, for once, cant some competant interviewer attempt to push the debate forward in Ireland without resorting to sensationalist, inflammatory, cheap shots.

I was warming to Ryan, but this was a serious breach of conduct on his behalf.

What do you expect? Rayn is a lackey for conservative Ireland and its outmoded values.* He seems to be trying to take his interview sytle as far from tepid Pat kenny as possible. I personally can't stand the chap.



*Although that didn't seem to stop him divorcing his wife last year.

Is he actually divorced??? I thought he only split up with the missus a couple of years ago. You need to be living apart for 5 years here to get a divorce.

Only because Ryan pushed him on it. It is inflammatory and polarising. The other option is to delve a bit deeper and discuss the content of what he is claiming.

Did he not make those comparisons to try to fire up the priest in the audience he was interviewing?

Regardless of why he did it, it was cheap and unprofessional. Bring back Kenny......

It was an appalling interview. It was total cringey and embarrassing.

I reckont that is way too harsh - he may not be the most liberal presenter going; but hes no lackey for conservitive Ireland. If you listen to him regularly; you will find he is no fan of social conservitivisim, and definately no fan of the clergy!

Is it just me, or did Gaybo [I discount Kenny as much the same as Tubbers] have his guests on a lot longer, thus allowing a proper 'lets get to the core of the matter' interview???

I agree in the main with the OP - his interviews are somewhat irreverent, and too frothy. He seems to only skirt the issues and then, just as the going could get tough and maybe lead to a good old-fashioned Late Late debate [remember the sort, phone ins on the radio all the following week] he pulls back with weak jokes and thin, meant-to-be-funny commentary.
