Tubridy treated Casey with a lack of re­spect

Irish Independent - - The Week -

I WATCHED the ‘Late Late Show’ last Fri­day look­ing for­ward in par­tic­u­lar to

the in­ter­view with Peter Casey, who was in­ter­est­ing to lis­ten to, sin­cere in what he said, and had a num­ber of good ideas on run­ning the coun­try.

How­ever, I was deeply an­noyed by the way he was in­ter­viewed by Ryan Tubridy as in­stead of af­ford­ing him the op­por­tu­nity to speak and get his points across, he con­stantly in­ter­rupted him in his ef­forts to do so. Mr Tubridy showed a com­plete lack of re­spect and there was a no­table dif­fer­ence be­tween how he treated Mr Casey and how he treated other peo­ple that he in­ter­viewed, such as Mary Robinson.

He should have lis­tened to what Mr Casey had to say and af­forded the same op­por­tu­nity to the au­di­ence and the view­ers, in­stead of try­ing to dom­i­nate the in­ter­view and drown Mr Casey out with the sound of his own voice.

His man­ner was in con­trast to that of Mr Casey, who re­mained calm and dig­ni­fied through­out the in­ter­view in spite of Mr Tubridy’s treat­ment of him.

The ap­plause Mr Casey got from the au­di­ence at the end spoke for it­self. Una Bell
