BBC Distortion - Again

Six times between 6 and 9am, today, BBC Scotland headlined: ‘The use of mesh implants in Scotland should be banned according to a parliamentary report.’ Then told us that: ‘The Scottish Government will give serious consideration to the findings.’ The implication is clear, that the Scottish Government has the power to ban these implants but has not done so despite the suffering they cause. However, from the 29th out of 31 statements in the BBC Scotland website version of the story we see, at last: ‘The spokesman also said the Scottish government did not have the power to ban the use of mesh, which was a matter for the Medicine and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), which is the regulator of medical devices across the UK and is the responsibility of Westminster.’

"North of the Border, BBC Scotland has struggled to accept that independence isn’t a “phase,” a single issue where balance matters only during an active referendum campaign. It’s the new most important faultline in Scottish politics and it is “led” not just by party politicians but by bloggers and locally organised groups all over Scotland. That’s why the BBC’s failure to report on local pro indy marches across Scotland, organised by All Under One Banner rather (than) the SNP has not just infuriated Yes voters – it’s been inevitable given Aunty’s rigid understanding of “balance” and who gets to make news."
