Reporting Scotland’s ‘Bloody’ bias by omission to protect Labour and Conservatives and splatter the SNP
Last night, Reporting Scotland got the new year off as they no doubt intend to continue, with a fine example of bias by omission, well-crafted to conceal the role of Conservative, Labour and Lab/Lib governments in the awful contaminated blood scandal of the 70s, 80s, 90s and naughties, and, if enough viewers were ‘unawoke’, to contaminate the SNP with some unattributable blood splatter patterns.
Here’s the actual report:
‘Scottish ministers were told in 2003 that the UK Health Department was investigating a claim that contaminated blood was being knowingly supplied. Newly released files show that the then Health Minister, Malcom Chisholm, informed the Scottish Executive of the allegation. Thousands of people were given blood products infected with Hepatitis and HIV in the 1970s and 1980s, but the allegation referred to by Mr Chisholm was made after the system was overhauled.
It’s an horrific and damning indictment. If only we knew who was responsible. That Chisholm guy seems to have done his bit.
