STV reporting Scotland better than Reporting Scotland but Reporting Scotland better at Tory News

This story idea and evidence from reader Andrew Rosie.

STV gave us quite an extended piece on the Agriculture Bill, fully explaining the risks and interviewing NFU Scotland:

In sharp contrast, BBC Reporting Scotland ignored these hugely significant events for their audience and instead questioned the First Minister’s focus on the pandemic:

The evidence for a lack of focus? ‘A source close to Alex Salmond.’

So Glenn Campbell, no evidence of, say, Scotland’s lower infection rates or death rates as a more reliable measure of performance? Just a source, you have, from some guy with an agenda that suits yours. Pathetic.

And, who else shares your agenda, Mr Campbell? Oh I know, we’ll ask:

This guy could do with a wee boost. Ross then gets the opportunity to accuse the FM of changing her story. That’s rich. Ross has dodged back and forward with his recall of where he stands and how he has previously voted on the agriculture bill. He has skipped VJ day ceremonies and Westminster votes to run the line for extra cash. BBC Scotland have pursued him on none of those.
