GA Ponsonby: BBC Scotland and politically motivated ‘Agenda Days’

BBC Scotland and politically 
motivated ‘Agenda Days’
by G A Ponsonby 29 May 2016

Have you ever wondered who or what sets the news agenda?  

A natural disaster will, by its very nature, become a major news story 

Terrorist atrocities too will dominate news headlines, especially if they result in the deaths of westerners. 

But sometimes news is manufactured. Sometimes a story dominates news for reasons other than genuine newsworthiness.  The story is manipulated and given a priority far greater than it deserves by dint of its political significance.

I’ve said before and I’ll repeat it.  The BBC in Scotland is a de-facto colonial broadcaster.
