BBC Scotland ridiculed after documentary promo is presented as news
BBC Scotland has been the subject of ridicule on social media after a documentary which featured a four year old Police Scotland report was presented as headline news.
The documentary ‘A Force in Crisis’ was presented by Samantha Poling who claimed to have been leaked ‘secret police documents’ which contained ‘claims of serious corruption and criticism of Police Scotland’s bosses’.
…. The documentary was promoted heavily on BBC Scotland News’ twitter account with clips showing Poling in a darkened room apparently poring over the secret documents, atmospheric music added to the melodramatic tone.
The clips prompted mockery on social media with users lampooning the presentation. One user tweeted: “I loved the piece on BBC Scotland showing the reporter poring over documents in a darkened room, late at night with pictures of officers in the background. Very reminiscent of “All the Presidents Men”
