Reporting Scotland editor denies demoting Brexit stories
The editor of Reporting Scotland has rejected a suggestion that an editorial policy is in place that results in Brexit related stories being pushed down the running order or ignored altogether by the programme.
Responding to a complaint, submitted after a major Brexit story was relegated to just fifth spot on the programme, the editor said: “I have looked again at this programme and am confident that it was fully in accord with the BBC’s Editorial Guidelines.”
The complaint related to the January 31st edition of the programme which was broadcast on the day an alleged leak of UK Government analysis showed any Brexit deal would harm the UK economy. Figures contained in the leaked analysis matched those published by the Scottish government only weeks earlier.
