A Looney suggestion

Ireland is producing a generation of young people who think they only have to talk to Joe Duffy to solve their problems, that is the view of Anne Looney (hmm), chief executive of the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment.

Miss Looney said:

"It is this lack of responsibility that keeps Joe Duffy on the air, and pages and pages of news media in circulation."

Talk to Joe!...not really though
Ireland's Dr Phil apparently

Joe Duffy hit back however at Ms Looney's claims saying it was the power of radio and the nationwide spread of listeners which empowered people:

"I have nothing to do with it, it is the people themselves."

You tell 'em, Joe! In all seriousness, Ms Looney does seem to be overreacting. I mean, if the young people of this country are turning to Joe Duffy to solve their problems then we're all well and truly f*cked.

Still, it could be worse. They could be turning to Adrian Kennedy...
