Is even the weather forecast on Reporting Scotland infected with that anxiety-inducing negativity that pervades the rest of their coverage?
Maybe I’m over-sensitive to comparisons here, but I had earlier looked at the Met Office site to see if things were going to return to normal in the next few days. They are. By the weekend, we’ll be back up at around 6C in much of Scotland. Even Braemar could hit 4C.
Reporting Scotland’s nasal rather than Japanese (Kodai is a male first name), weather-person, above informed us the cold air was ‘going nowhere’ and stopped the forecast at tonight, ‘bitterly cold.’
Why no forecast for the next few days to reassure us?
BBC UK did:
By Saturday or Sunday, something warmer this way comes.
I’ve often argued, to widespread disagreement, that much of BBC Scotland’s bias results from a largely unconscious set of cultural tendencies to report in a way that benefits the Union, other than in the work of fully-conscious propagandists such as Campbell, Cook or Smith.
Is even the weather reporting the same?
