We got criticised yesterday for doing a story ‘beneath the BBC’. Steve in Virginia said ‘There’s got to be something more newsworthy than this!’ And there are more criticisms today. This is just in from Crispo in Uganda:
I must ask you, why you chose such a topic whose significance stopped at least on a small extent yesterday? Why is it that important topics are always shunned for quite useless and undevelopmental topics?
Haven’t we had enough of this discussion, by the way it goes on everyday. Is it our fault that women do not feel comfortable with their bodies?
For Gods sake Ros, stop piling this wonderful show with trivial issues as these. You made me outraged and i apologise if i sound harsh, but am being sincere with you and myself.
Why did you decline picking the drug issue or the world war that has changed how we live forever?
Sometimes you need prudence and pick topics according to its world relevance and not merely because you are gender sensitive or everybody seems to be talking about it. If that is what all leaders did, we’d still be very much undeveloped.
