YOU FUCKING IDIOTS!

This is going to be the shortest Media Glass House in the history of The Bug.

As the European Cup penalty shootout took place in London, ABC News Breakfast used a box on the lower right of the screen to show the reaction of the Italian and English crowds in separate parts of Melbourne as each shot was taken.

For poor people such as us at The Bug who can’t afford expensive sports streaming services, it was the next best thing as a way of being part of that tense shootout.

We could keep score through the reactions of those football fans. Fantastic, gripping, next-best-thing television, in fact.

Yet when the teams got to two-all, that box mysteriously disappeared as Catherine Murphy reported on Djokovic’s win at Wimbledon. It never reappeared before the Italians finally won the Euro Cup 3-2 on penalties.

So here’s our heartfelt message to the ABC’s News Breakfast producers: you had one fucking job to do and you fucked it up.

YOU FUCKING IDIOTS!
