Tubridy treated Casey with a lack of respect
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
