With the Government planning to introduce a number of measures, the first of which is a package of measures designed to prevent a “lost generation” of jobs, the future of RTE’s Radio 1’s business programme is also under serious consideration.
However, the plans are also likely to face resistance from other media outlets, and the broadcaster is being kept in the dark about some of the details.
The proposals to change the BBC’s editorial policies, and create an independent editorial board are among the many things that will be put forward to change editorial policies.
A number of other changes, including a proposal to require a majority of the editorial board to endorse the programme, will be discussed in the coming weeks.
RTE has a long history of critical views about the Government, with the broadcaster repeatedly criticising the Government for its policies, especially in relation to the public services.
The Government has been criticised for its failure to respond to concerns about the number of people living in poverty, the lack of health and education services, and other issues affecting working people.
RTV’s flagship programme, the Business section, has been targeted for the cuts and has not been spared, with its editor and co-host, Mark Pritchard, facing serious criticism from RTE over the coverage of the public sector pay dispute.
The programme has also been accused of being biased in favour of the Conservative Party and the Government.
As a result, the broadcaster has become increasingly critical of the Government in the past year, and this week was criticised by the RTE editorial board for its coverage of a row over the cuts to the Public Services Commission.
In the wake of the row, RTE asked for an investigation into the complaints made against RTV.
The Government has responded to the criticisms of its policies by saying that it is trying to protect jobs and public services, but that the changes will be a “huge leap” in the direction of a more open BBC.
However, it has also said that the proposed changes are only for the time being, and will not affect RTV at all.
“The Government is trying really hard to appease its audience.
It’s really trying to please the people who are the backbone of the BBC.
I don’t think it’s in the best interests of the British public to have a loss of any of our core journalism in the next few years.
It is a big leap, and it will take some time to make sure that all of the new policies are implemented,” said RTE editor-in-chief Mike Rafferty.
The changes to the BBC are likely to be a major boost for the BBC and RTV, which have been fighting for more than a decade to keep the programme in the public domain.
However Rafferity is not confident that the cuts will actually work.
Rafferty said that, at the moment, the changes are being “discussed and discussed”.
“There’s a number [of changes] that are very well in the offing.
I think it will come as a shock to most people, but in fact there will be some of these proposals, the Government will be trying to change, but there’s not going to be any of that being reflected in the programme itself,” he said.
However, Rafferties fears have not gone unnoticed, with many media outlets criticising him for having failed to respond.
“I am worried, not just for RTE, but for the entire media and business world in general,” said BBC director general Lord Hall.
The Independent has also reported that the BBC has been in discussions with the Government about a range of other measures, including changes to its commercial policies.
But it remains unclear what the Government plans to do with the plans, or what will happen to RTE if the Government decides to pull the plug on RTE.
One of the most popular topics on RTV is the impact of the Brexit vote on the BBC, which was the subject of a documentary on the show last year.
While there is no official comment from the Government on the programme’s future, RTV has said that it has received a number in the last few weeks from a number people in the Government to gauge the mood of the country.
Earlier this week, the BBC revealed that the UK Government had asked it to reconsider its plans to cancel RTV in 2018.
Despite the government’s decision, the corporation has not taken the plunge, and continues to support the programme.
