Multiple pigeon slayings ‘after’ Reporting Scotland links them with hospital deaths

‘Glasgow youths go on pigeon killing spree ‘after’ Lisa Summers encourages them.’

They don’t give up do they? Despite sending me two apologetic responses to my complaints about the misleading use of ‘from’ and ‘as a result of’ which I’d argue ‘led to’ some viewers thinking that the fungal infection linked to pigeon droppings had actually ‘caused’ the deaths when it had been only a ‘contributory’ factor, they were at it again last night.

Reporting Scotland editor apologises for Jackie Bird being wrong and ‘has a word with her’

When Reporting Scotland are caught lying, they say it ‘did not quite come out as intended’

Some time ‘after’ 6.30pm, Lisa Summers said:

‘Two patients died after contracting an infection linked to pigeon droppings.’

The word ‘after’ can mean quite different things as the two sentences above illustrate. It can mean that something only happened chronologically later than something else or it could mean that the first thing has, at least in part, caused the second thing. Reporting Scotland staff are not (that) daft. They know what they’re doing here. They clearly meant viewers to think the infection had been causal in the deaths even thought that is not true. Why else link the two events? Had both patients died after visits from relatives or after eating grapes or after watching Reporting Scotland?

So, this is once more, regardless of criticism or professions of a desire to improve their own standards, a pattern of behaviour which after repeated incidents ‘linked to’ Labour Branch appearances suggests very strongly the intention to deceive for propagandistic purposes.

    Closed mind mentality.

    If they put as much creative intellect into making good honest programmes, as they into making up lies, smears and innuendos, they could be a World Class Broadcaster.

    Instead, they are a disgrace to honest journalism.

    I noticed that as well and thought here we go again they just can’t help themselves a nasty shower of barstewards.

    What drives these people. An early release of A. I. Are they related to Red Jacket Man

    The kindest thing I can say about this one is, she needs her upper dentures stuck in place.
