The ever vigilant MSM Monitor (https://twitter.com/msm_monitor) has been drawing our attention to the constant tendency for BBC Scotland to omit any mention of Brexit in discussing issues which have been clearly triggered by it.
Today, they noted:
The flagship pro-Union news programme Good Morning Scotland carried another bulletin about the shortage of HGV drivers this morning and *again* failed to mention Brexit or the EU. Today’s diversionary issue is apparently libraries.
This is bias by omission, a common, cheap and probably effective form of propaganda which, when used repeatedly and consistently across TV, radio and websites can gradually break any meaningful connection between Brexit and, for example, staff shortages, empty store shelves or failing businesses.
The ambition of this UK government and its supine media is that we will, in time forget what we have lost. What have we lost? I probably don’t need to remind you but try these for starters:
- Trade barriers
- Worker shortages
- Loss of investment
- Financial services snags
That’s just the economy. We’ll lose so much more in terms of social and cultural factors if we hang about in Little Britain.
That our MSM are complicit in trying to cover this up, is shameful.
