Even when discussing matters Scottish the BBC cannot resist seeking journalistic comment from a left-wing rather than a centrist or centre-right newspaper. Today's The World This Weekend featured a report from Brian Hanrahan on the SNP's proposed referendum bill on independence. As well as interviewing socialist Nationalist MSP Margo McDonald, Labour's secretary of state for Scotland Jim Murphy (I.C. of 0) and Nicola Sturgeon, deputy leader of the SNP (I.C. of 0), Hanrahan sought the expertise of Robin Dinwoodie, chief political correspondent of the centre-left Herald newspaper. That's the BBC for you!
