I do think that there is too much sports news on Sky News BUT I do not think they should reduce it.

Sky is mass media and the golden rule of mass media is "give the people what they want"! -

- I'm not big into sports or football or any of that sort of stuff but it appears that the majority of people in the British Isles anyway, are interested in sport and I'm sure that is why there is so much sports news on Sky news. - If thats what people wnat, long may it continue.

In fairness, Sky do drop the sport in favour of news when necessary, but I do agree that they do overplay it a tad too much.

I think that Sky should go back to the original programmes. Your Call, Technofile, and Money were good programmes.

I would tend to agree, there is too much, but simply switching over to SSN isn't quite the same as it's 90% borring football at least.
