A COMMERCIAL broadcaster is promising to challenge the BBC’s “boring” and “leftish” current affairs coverage by launching a rival radio station. Scottish Radio Holdings, which already owns a number of stations north of the Border, will apply to media regulator Ofcom this week for the new FM licence covering Edinburgh, Fife and Lothians.It would be wonderful if we had an alternative to the biased BBC here in Scotland. What's extraordinary is this comment from the Beeb:
A spokesman for BBC Scotland said: “ Any suggestion that we are boring or leftish is complete rubbish.”There again, they don't really get it, do they? In the mind (sic) of the typical BBC operative anyone not a paid-up member of the Guardian-reading class must be some kind of Nazi deviant to the right of Genghis Khan or even George Bush.
