Choices, choices, what will Reporting Scotland’s editor select from the many, many stories out there?
Unlike the shameless attempts in the days before election day to undermine the SNP with tales of the unvaccinated, of businesses ruined by too slow emergence from lockdown and of an illegal referendum, they were at least subtle (sneaky?) today.
Why will the Lions rugby coach name his selection today? Did he always plan to do it today? Why is he hinting at more Scots?
Why is this a top story even before it has happened? How many of you were waiting excitedly to hear?
The story isn’t featured on BBC 1 Breakfast in the first 30 minutes before the BBC Scotland insert. Their sport correspondent goes for news of events that have already happened, in football. Maybe they plan to report the news when it is the news?
The story doesn’t make the BBC Scotland website page at all, nor the BBC England page.
Wait, Wales! They love rugby. Ah, ‘Wales great Alun Wyn Jones to captain squad!’ Off course that’s an announcement that has actually been made not one coming later. It is the news.
The Herald? Nope, 15 reports on football and 1 on……..curling!
Somebody in Pacific Quay loves the game? Wait, didn’t John Beattie? Something?
