It was all a hoax

For the past 5 years or so, Eamon Dunphy has pretended to provide a real news program, first on TodayFM and now on Newstalk. However, all pretense of being a real news program went out the window today.

This morning Dunphy led a 10 minute discussion of the July 1969 moon landing. As part of this discussion, Dunphy interviewed one of these "it was all a hoax" lunatics and treated his arguments as worthy of serious consideration. Fortunately, he also had on a real scientist who was able to debunk those ridiculous claims fairly easily, but I'm not sure Dunphy really believed the evidence when the hoax myth was so much more appealing.

I really think Dunphy needs better people around him. He can be fine at times, but someone needs to tell him 'no' when he wants to pursue this sort of wacky nonsense.
