EU-US free trade talks could jeopardise RTE – Ni Riada

A new free trade deal between the EU and the US
could jeopardise the future of RTE and TG4.  That’s the view of the Sinn Fein MEP Liadh Ni
Riada. She was referring to the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership,
known as TTIP. Talks are currently underway between the EU and the US on TTIP.
And the European Parliament is this week making a number of recommendations on the
trade talks to the European Commission. Liadh Ni Riada, says an EU-US free trade
deal could have detrimental effects on the state broadcaster.
