Derek McMillan Posted June 12, 2006 Share Posted June 12, 2006 When three inmates at Guantanamo committed suicide, the BBC covered the story quite seriously, getting responses from Washington correspondents and reactions from other countries. I turned over to ITN. They had ten minutes of World Cup trivia including extensive coverage with commentary of a family watching the football on the television. They then had about ten seconds on the Guantanamo story. In what way is the World Cup "news" rather than "sports news" which used to be a separate entity? Did the American authorities think it a good day to bury bad news? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
