BBC presenter forced to apologise after misquoting SNP MP
A BBC Scotland reporter has issued an apology after misquoting comments from an SNP MP.
Business and Economy editor Douglas Fraser had accused MP John Nicolson of wanting to replace BBC Scotland with the new digital channel recently announced by the corporation.
In a tweet, the BBC Scotland reporter said: “New BBC Scot TV channel: News at 9: 80 new jobs @MrJohnNicolson SNP: ‘missed opportunity not to have ScotSix: new channel shd replace BBC1’ ”
The claim was rubbished by the SNP MP, who responded: “I didn’t suggest that it should replace BBC 1 nor do I think it should.”
Nicolson added: “No idea where Douglas got that from. Entirely inaccurate.”
