The Nine

I have been very critical of the BBC Scotland channel and swore to never watch and in the main I don’t. However, for the last week I have watched the Nine.

I decided to give it a go and see if it was as bad or as good as I had heard it was. I must admit I have found it to be neither. The standing up of the presenters is a bit gimmicky to be fair and the casual dress I don’t care about either way.

The news coverage is a bit more optimistic than Reporting Scotland, the Nine is not all murder, fitba, and how shite the Scottish NHS is according to the British Unionists paid to keep us down report daily. I don’t necessarily see the Nine as a more Scottish view of Scotland and the international community it’s just less offensive than Reporting Scotland and STV Scotland Tonight. I probably won’t make a habit of watching as I just can’t be bothered with the BBC but to be fair it’s better than most of the shit we are served as news.

I need to make the effort to check out Debate Night at some point.

      Totally, it’s not very good but not near as bad as I thought it would be but it’s the BBC so I won’t be making an effort to watch it at all now that my week is over.

      Thanks for commenting.

    They think that a “half decent” Nine will blind us to the bias of Repscot and other BBC programmes. Some will fall for that, others won’t.

      It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be and certainly not as offensive as the others but it’s still peace meal. If they devolved the BBC to Holyrood with proper scrutiny for our money then I would live with that until independence or until it’s sold off but either way it is still average at best and not something I will be making a lot of effort to watch.

      Thanks for commenting.
