The National:

Yesterday, the Lord Ashcroft poll placing Yes at 52% was the biggest story of the day, but the BBC News website didn't cover it. The broadcaster featured polling expert John Curtice talking about it on Good Morning Scotland, and then failed to mention it anywhere else until about 9pm when an article about the First Minister's Edinburgh Fringe appearance was posted.

The BBC told us they don't report on individual polls in isolation, and instead wait for patterns to emerge in polling and report on that instead in accordance with their guidelines. A BBC spokesperson said: "The results of this poll were covered in an extensive analysis of polling trends from Professor Sir John Curtice on Good Morning Scotland.

"This is in keeping with our editorial guidelines which advise that the result of an individual poll in isolation should not be published as a headline story."

We wrote an article providing five reasons why this wasn't a good enough excuse, and one of those points was that the BBC has certainly reported on individual polls before. What we didn't realise at the time was just how many times the BBC has reported on individual polls.

Reddit user u/StevieTV posted about the issue last night, and in response u/bottish compiled a list of 27 times the broadcaster has in fact reported on individual polls in recent times. Some of the surveys have smaller sample sizes than yesterday's Ashcroft study (which questioned 1019 adults) too.
