An activist group has divided opinion by crowdfunding to place billboards accusing the BBC of anti-Scottish bias. What do you think?
Is the BBC biased against Scotland?
An activists’ crowdfunding campaign has raised more than £8000 to place a series of billboards across the country “exposing” what it says is BBC bias against Scotland.
Inform Scotland, a nationalist group, says the corporation misreports what happens in the country as a means of blocking the independence movement.
The anti-BBC campaign springs from events during the 2014 indyref, which saw demonstrations outside the BBC HQ in Glasgow, which demanded the sacking of journalists.
The BBC itself has stringently denied it is biased, and many in the independence movement have distanced themselves from the Inform Scotland stunt, saying it harms the cause.
However, among some nationalist circles the idea has gained favour, especially on social media where an active community vigorously attacks what it calls the MSM - the mainstream media.
That’s why we’re asking: what do you think? Is the BBC biased against Scotland?
