I THINK that it is ridiculous that we have had over four days of saturation coverage on all the news programmes on all television channels since Saturday concerning the Russell Brand story.

There are far more important and interesting stories throughout the world that deserve to be aired on the news and also deserve more coverage than this arrogant conceited excuse for a man.

On Monday on the BBC News at 6pm, the Russell Brand story coverage lasted six-and-a-half minutes while the following stories about the Horizon postmasters compensation scandal which had five minutes coverage and the Libyan flood disaster had five minutes coverage and three other important news stories had a total of nine and a half minutes coverage.

For God’s sake please BBC, once again try and get your priorities right and stop broadcasting tripe and uninteresting stories which at the least should only be mentioned in seconds.
