Can we have a reality check?!?!!?

The top news headline on the BBC this morning is that Prince William and Kate Middleton broke up. 2 young people's relationship fell apart, it's sad, but isn't really that important, and should be treated as a private matter. It is also arguable that one of the reasons they broke up was partly because of the news reporting on every aspect of their relationship.

In Iraq today 50 people died in a car bomb, surely that is far more important news. 50 people died vs 2 young people's relationship coming to an end.

Maybe if the news spent more time on the real news, then perhaps royal relationships wouldn't fall apart so much.
