O apresentador do SporTV, Bruno Souza, revoltou os torcedores do Esporte Clube Bahia e os nordestinos em geral nas redes sociais depois de um comentário polêmico.
Bruno apresentava o “Redação SporTV” nesta quarta (14), quando repercutia o jogo Cruzeiro e San Lorenzo, pela Libertadores da América. Em dado momento, torcedores do Bahia mandaram mensagens dizendo que Romanglioli, um dos principais jogadores do time argentino, já tinha acertado com o clube baiano.
Ao ler as mensagens, Bruno comentou: “O torcedor do Bahia, aqui no Twitter, falando que Romagnoli estaria acertado com o Bahia. Tem que rir, né?”.
O tom usado pelo apresentador não agradou os torcedores do clube:
Também através do Twitter, Bruno Souza se pronunciou e disse que não teve a intenção de ofender: “O que chamou a atenção foi a euforia com um atleta que ainda disputa a Liberta. Muito legal, aliás. Mas não entenderam assim. Tentei destacar a euforia da torcida com um atleta que ainda disputa uma competição em andamento. Em momento algum desmereci o clube. Risada = bom-humor. É diferente de deboche. E já estávamos rindo antes… Esporte é coisa boa, leve, faz bem. Ou deveria ser assim”.
O “Redação SporTV” é um dos mais elogiados programas esportivos da TV paga, tanto que, no ano passado, o público do NaTelinha o escolheu como o melhor programa esportivo da atualidade.

The managing directors of the ABC and SBS have criticised the Abbott government for breaking a pre-election promise not to cut funding to the broadcasters.
Treasurer Joe Hockey revealed in Tuesday’s budget that $43.5 million will be cut from the ABC and SBS over four years, with more cuts expected when an efficiency review of the broadcasters is complete. The ABC will also lose funding for the $223 million Australia Network international broadcasting service.
The public broadcasters are warning jobs will be lost, investment in Australian content will decline and innovation will be stymied as a result of the cuts.
On the eve of the 2013 election Tony Abbott promised: “No cuts to education, no cuts to health, no change to pensions, no change to the GST and no cuts to the ABC or SBS.”
ABC managing director Mark Scott told Fairfax Media: “The ABC audience had an expectation there would be no funding cuts. Clear commitments were made not to cut ABC funding before and after the last election – it was unambiguous. This is a very disappointing result.”
In an email to staff Mr Scott said job losses would be inevitable as a result of the cuts.
“If we can not reinvest any savings we find the ABC will be weaker over time and not as relevant to the Australian people,” he said.
Mr Scott criticised the government for a lack of consultation on the decision to scrap all funding for the Australia Network.
“I’m very disappointed we have not been able to have detailed discussions with DFAT or the minister about the Australia Network,” he said. “They didn’t want to talk to us about finding savings or where we could cut back.
“I don’t believe there was deep and substantial consultation about this. It was a decision made in our absence.”
Mr Scott said the decision would limit Australia’s soft power in the Asia-Pacific and hit the broadcaster’s domestic offering.
“I wouldn’t underestimate the impact of the Australia Network cut on domestic services,” he said. “There are foreign bureaus funded by the Australia Network and programs on News 24.”
SBS managing director Michael Ebeid said: “We were really hoping the promise made before the election would be kept and there would be not cuts to the ABC or SBS. SBS is already an under-funded organisation and we have been using efficiencies to cover existing costs.”
Mr Ebeid said he recognised the government had to make tough decisions but he was “gravely concerned” about future cuts flagged in the budget.
“Any future cuts would have to impact on content and Australian content which is 10 to 15 times more expensive to produce,” he said. “Our ability to tell Australian stories will be severely limited.”
