Unconscious Bias – How the BBC Use the Dark Arts to Bludgeon Scots with misinformation

BBC Scotland: Politics – BBC text editorial staff are masters of the dark art of using subliminal messages that influence and oft adversely affect the readers mind without their being aware of it. The two links below appear innocuous but careful study reveals the hidden message of a lesser person, (with little status) writing to a superior of significant seniority. This type of misuse of the written word confirms to the Scottish reader that their status in society (drawn from the position of their leader) is vastly inferior.

The correct wording should have been: FM writes to PM on fiscal deal

First sentence of the article: Nicola Sturgeon has written to the prime minister putting forward her case in the talks over a fiscal framework.

Should have been: The first minister has written to the prime minister putting forward her case in the talks over a fiscal framework.

 

 

BBC accused of “dishonesty” and bias over EU referendum coverage

Nigel Farage has written to the BBC Trust over its use of the word “Europe” in place of “European Union” amid claims it benefits the “In” campaign.

Only two examples but there are tens of thousands more. Check previous BBC articles and alert friends and collleagues to be on their guard.
