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.

The BBC are a public body so if you want to know then ask them.

Interestingly they claim not to be obliged to answer.

Thank you for your request to the BBC seeking the following information under the Freedom of 
Information Act 2000:   
 
How many FOI requests did BBC journalists submit to organisations external to the BBC in 2016-17? 
 
How much did the time taken to submit the FOIs by BBC employees cost? 
 
What percentage of the FOI requests submitted to organisations external to the BBC were responded to? 
 
Please note that the information you have requested is excluded from the Act because it is held 
for the purposes of ‘journalism, art or literature.’ Part VI of Schedule 1 to the Act provides that 
information held by the BBC and the other public service broadcasters is only covered by the Act 
if  it  is  held  for  ‘purposes  other  than  those  of  journalism,  art  or  literature”  1.  The  BBC  is  not 
required by the Act to supply information held for the purposes of creating the BBC’s output or 
information that supports and is closely associated with these creative activities. 
The  limited  application  of  the  Act  to  public  service  broadcasters  is  to  protect  freedom  of 
expression  and  the  rights  of  the  media,  guaranteed  under  Article  10  European  Convention  on 
Human Rights (“ECHR”).  The BBC, as a media organisation, is under a duty to impart information 
and ideas on all matters of public interest and the importance of this function has been recognised 
by  the  European  Court  of  Human  Rights.    Maintaining  our  editorial  independence  is  a  crucial 
factor in enabling the media to fulfil this function.

Even the coverage of the Commonwealth games is fucking despicable. Scotland wins a gold medal in the swimming and they don’t bother interviewing him after. Scotland has 2 qualify for a swimming final, neither interviewed but they interview Adam Peaty. Fucking disgraceful coverage.

I stopped watching when I saw that p***k Prince Charles was opening the games. Was it another “send your son to work” day? It’s not his job. If his mother is too decrepit to manage it, then she should resign and allow the Commonwealth to decide whether it wants to elect her son. The role is not hereditary.

Instead of asking the BBC how many FOI Requests they've sent to the health boards you could ask the Health boards how many FOI requests they've received from the BBC

That would be 10 FOI requests instead of 1 but if you seriously want answers....
