RTÉ is currently in the process of preparing a new ‘Public Service Statement’ and is requesting feedback from the public in advance of its publication. In the advertisement requesting input from the public, RTÉ says: “We want to understand what you think about RTÉ and what you want from it. Your views will guide what we will do over the years ahead.”
Pro-life supporters have every reason not to trust RTÉ’s commitment to fair and impartial broadcasting after years of one-sided slanted coverage on the abortion issue. However, this should not dissuade us in any way from contributing to the latest request for feedback. It’s vital that we avail of every opportunity to have our voices heard.
Even if you just submit one short paragraph, make your voice heard today!
