BBC reporting dumbing down

I still read the BBC news, I am a UK tax payer and television licence holder. But I think I am going to have to stop, I just read an article about an athlete that has been accused of being a man.

Questioning somebody's identity like that is very personal and humiliating. The story gripped me with questions about what that would be like and how is sport addressing the issue. Then right at the end it says:

"Groups supporting her have been formed on social networking site Facebook."

WTF! Clearly the reported just wanted an excuse to log on to facebook and add more friends. Advertising facebook is not the remit of the BBC.

Update: I just submitted a complaint to the BBC and asked for a reply.
