RTE news casters do not sound like they are from the midwest. they are from ireland(full stop).
you cant define have a neutral accent, its impossible. you cant have a neutral from a specific or orientated person. you can only have one that is more or less, and i think that more neutral would be 'the queens english' as some may have heard it called. neutral english could be writing, as a sound cant encompass all aspects of every accent into one which by definition be a neutral accent.
agreed with first post, silly question
