This is the link to Episode 41 where I originally interviewed RTÉ's news planner, Donal Byrne, and this is the original of the set-up interview with Paul Reynolds where he gave what he said were details of the contents of the O'Higgins report, which was published two days later.
That report, and the possibility that it was made in collusion with the embattled Garda Commissioner Nóirín O'Sullivan, has since become one of the terms of reference (item g) of the Commission of Investigation announced by An Taoiseach, Enda Kenny, into the affair.
Reynolds' report was the unspoken target of another report by Philip Boucher Hayes the next day, which rebutted many of his claims. A transcript of Boucher Hayes' report is here, but the audio of it seems to have been removed from the RTÉ website. Edit: the audio of this report now seems to have been restored by RTÉ.
Ruth Coustick-Deal of Open Media was talking to me about EU proposals for a 'Link Tax' which would require websites to pay for links with snippets to news articles, and require websites to filter posted content to suit rights-holders.
