'Why is football the main news?' BBC Breakfast backlash as viewers slam World Cup coverage

Date:


Although as the sport dominated the show, it wasn’t long before people watching took to Twitter to complain about its extensive coverage.

Magsiesss said: “Here’s an idea. What about reporting some actual real-world news? What about reporting more on the really brave Iranians who did not sing their national anthem and why? The more I hear about your football reporting, the less I like it. Less is more.”

Dylan6roberts added: “4 weeks of this football s**t. I can’t cope. #BbcBreakfast.”

IBuntyedition slammed: “ WHY IS FOOTBALL THE MAIN NEWS? THE SPORTS CAN BE A 5-MINUTE SECTION AT THE END. WHAT IS WRONG, THAT #BBC WILL NOT PRESENT NEWS? WHO DECIDED THAT FOOTBALL IS THE NEWS? IT IS A DISTRACTION FOR YOUR TARGET AUDIENCE. AS THE UK CONTINUES TO FALL APART OUTSIDE EU.”
