BBC Breakfast viewers were left disappointed in Naga Munchetty as they suggested she'd given a guest an 'easy ride' during an interview.
The TV host sat down with the secretary general of the National Union of Rail, Mick Lynch, on Saturday morning to grill him about the latest round of train strikes.
Viewers had hoped that Naga, 47, would have probed the union boss with difficult questions over the rail chaos this week.
Train services are set to face disruptive cancellations across the country – just a days after tens of thousands of workers staged a walk-out on Thursday.
The chaos is set to last until at least Sunday amid strikes at Network Rail, across train services, on the London Underground and on bus routes.
It's expected that four out of every five trains will not run today, and there'll be fewer services on Sunday as staff get back to work.

BBC Breakfast fans tuned in to watch Naga grill Mick, 60 – but admitted they were left disappointed as they felt he "avoided answering questions", and that she let him "get away" with it.
Writing to Twitter, one viewer fumed: "BBC Breakfast doesn't challenge anything that Mick Lynch says, but Naga is like a Rottweiler when it's a member of the government."
A second chimed in: "Naga failed to put Mick Lynch under pressure, unlike her interview with politicians."
"BBC Breakfast, what a difference between Charlie's interview with Grant Shapps yesterday and Naga's with Mick Lynch this morning," a third penned.

“Charlie was aggressive, kept interrupting and at times rude . Naga didn’t interrupt once and didn’t press him on any point. Terrible.”
"Letting Lynch push his bulls*** propaganda without questioning what he said once, time to ditch the licence," a fourth fumed.
Others stepped in to defend Naga, with one writing: "Naga taking the sensible, non-confrontational approach to interviewing."
It comes after BBC Breakfast viewers blasted Naga's co-star Charlie Stayt for a "rude and aggressive" interview about the trains strikes.
The veteran, 60, interviewed transport secretary Grant Shapps, which made viewers claim him as "one of the most rude interviewers on TV."
To discuss the current train strikes, the interview got off to a hostile start when Charlie said: "You're the transport minister, and it's almost like you're suggesting it doesn't have much to do with you?
"Why are you not more involved in this process?"
Grant replied: "Why do you say that? I don't think that's right at all, I'm involved in it every single day, almost every hour."
Charlie snapped back: "Give me an example. Yesterday during the strike day, what actually did you do?"

After multiple interruptions, Charlie then said: "Hold on a minute, Mr Shapps," and claimed people would be "bemused" and find it "odd" what he is talking about when there are currently no trains.
Viewers were left fuming over Charlie's behaviour in the interview, slamming him as "hostile" and the interview as a "car crash".
