BBC Scotland ‘beef-up’ the bad news for Scotland – a very flawed documentary
BBC Scotland have been having a go at that investigative journalism again with their fearless exposé of the export trade in young calves.
At first sight it looks edgy and dark with sad images of wee calves no longer wanted by the dairy industry. It is deeply disturbing in places but its attempt to place Scotland in a central role in this global practice, then exaggerated by the Reporting Scotland coverage, is completely flawed with inaccuracies and inadequacies.
… I’ve got no problem with BBC Scotland investigating this topic. It’s only when they, once more, try to use their findings as a justification for attacking the Scottish Government that we need to check them out.
