The Herald had a side headline today (click on image to enlarge) that Trump and Putin are less disliked than the SNP by voters who voted leave in the recent EU Referendum and you know what, they are correct , but only when you look at the results of the yougov poll and decide to go purely SNP BAD on your analysis.
But when you look at the results of the poll you can start to paint a different picture to the extent that the headline could have read SNP favored more in Scotland than Hilary Clinton, Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin, Angela Merkel, The Conservative Party, The Labour Party, The Liberal Democrats, UKIP, Theresa May, Boris Johnson, Philip Hammond, David Davis, Jeremy Corbyn, Tim Farron, David Cameron, George Osbourne and MP’s generally and you would have been equally correct. Only Barak Obama was more favorable, but for the life of me I don’t know why.
This is just another example of the SNP BAD mantra from the Unionist media in Scotland that we have sadly come to expect, and the absolute fact that you just cannot and should not trust anything they say, but again, as Wings has pointed out, it’s all in the headline. Lets all start pointing out this crap to as many people as we know who get their news from these people, and sadly believe it. We can be in no doubt that when any story reports the SNP are bad at something you really do need to dig a little deeper, analyze the stats for yourself, and more importantly put them into the correct context, I find stats interesting (yes I know) but I have learned that when it comes to the Scottish Government, the SNP and the Unionist media, the headline is rarely the truth and the truth more informative than the headline.
