BBC Scotland Complaint – The habitual use of the term ‘SNP Ministers’
Complaint submitted on March 04th, 2018
On the March 4th edition of Reporting Scotland an item covering the so-called ‘Continuity Bill’ heard the reporter refer to SNP Ministers instead of the technically accurate “Scottish Government Ministers”. There then followed an attack on the Scottish government by Ruth Davidson on the issue.
This habit amongst reporters and presenters of using the term SNP Ministers or ‘SNP Government’ on issues deemed controversial and that offer an opportunity of attack by opponents of the SNP, is one that is pervasive on BBC Scotland. Over the last few weeks it has been adopted in stories related to Police Scotland, Income tax changes and the OBFA.
