BBC bias

Recommended Posts

Is anyone going to tell welshbairn about yesterday's hilariously blatant SNP smear the BBC conducted yesterday, as they do most days?   Or is he better to be allowed to live in blissful delusion that the BBC wouldn't lie cause reasons?

If anyone has stats on how many foi requests the BBC has sent to Scottish health boards in a literally daily quest to desperately manufacture SNP bad stories, compared to how many they submitted when labour were in power, that would be very enlightening too.

How long has FOI been on the go? Labour have been irrelevant for so long it may not have actually been invented yet.

Why don't you tell me Peppino, maybe providing a link?

Loads more where they come from. Must have a vandetta against the Tories too. I assume they send duplicate FOI requests to every NHS authority in the UK.

Indeed. From the piece I linked above the BBC submitted, on average, one FoI request a fortnight. It is quite a lot but I don't see how it amounts to any kind of bias.

Less than I would have expected though. I bet there are far more requests to Westminster. It would have been more indicative of bias if there had been a big surge leading up to the referendum. Maybe they've just decided to use FOI's more often in their journalism generally.

That's just Scottish Govt, doesn't include FOIs to councils, NHS trusts, etc.

This.  But that isn't actually what I'm talking about.

Yesterday on Gms they had a labour MSP on to discuss customer dissatisfaction with busses.

Humza yousaf was on a train at the time.  He offered to be interviewed via Skype, as he has done very successfully many times.  The BBC said no.  The same BBC then said during their piece yousaf couldn't be on the show as he was travelling (which we know to be a quite outrageous lie), thus making him look bad and giving labour MSP free reign to criticise the SNP.  

If you want a link go read humza Twitter.

You also have not one but two separate presenters on two separate bulletins repeating the same lie about sturgeon three days ago.  Then claiming it was an innocent mistake in response to complaints.

If anybody says the BBC aren't actively trying to smear the SNP every day and prevent independence I lose all respect for them.  You'd have to be wilfully ignorant not to see it.

If you think you can depend on a reliable skype signal on Scotrail, you can't have been on the trains much.

It was made clear on both broadcasts that Sturgeon had blamed the firms for sending the drivers out. It's hardly a slur on her to say that she said the drivers shouldn't have gone out in those conditions. It's pedantic nit picking desperate to find offence.

There's no hope for you.  Read his Twitter, he's done it "very successfully" "many" times.  His words.

Oh I see so when she specifically said she wasn't criticising HGV drivers and they explicitly (twice) said she had that was just unfortunate was it.

Btw do you want to make an offer on this bridge?
