BBC Reporting Scotland Analysis – Week Beginning 25 Sep 2017
Robert Davies, one of the two Scottish Conservative councillors responsible of posting racist tweets to on Twitter, has been forced out of the party – after being reinstated – for refusing to apologise. The BBC had been reluctant to report on these tweets being racist and bigoted when the story first broke, but here the racist element is reported. Yet nothing is said of the fact that Ruth Davidson, the leader of the party, misled the public by claiming those responsible for the tweets had been sent on a course to address their issues when they had not. Similarly, reporter Cariona Renton states that both of the Tory councillors have already issued an apology. This is presented as fact despite no evidence being presented.
