BBC Scottish News Nonsense

The BBC TV Scottish News at 6.30 managed to sink to new depths of journalistic worthlessness this evening. Tonight we had a story about school kids learning ballroom dancing, a story about first world war nurses and the usual endless rash of football stories. The fact that Enterprise Minister Jim Mather was in the Scottish Borders for a summit meeting about the textile industry was roundly ignored; amazingly even ITV's Lookaround managed to feature it. Someone involved with news reporting at the BBC in Scotland needs to get a grip of what is happening on the TV news. It is just not good enough to report all this 'soft news nonsense' when so much more of greater significance and importance is going on.
