Just catching up with some stuff that has been going on and read a bit about this one today.
It appears that some journalists are a bit unhappy that Alex Salmond has had a go at their journalistic integrity. My heart bleeds, not. He is quoted as saying that the press in Scotland are “despised” , he is not wrong.
The press in Scotland, and in particular the BBC, wouldn’t know truth and balance if it smacked them in the kisser. When they should be ensuring balance and impartiality they follow their and their masters agenda and when criticised scream that they are here to hold politicians to account, well only some of them.
Mr Salmond said: “The press are largely despised not just because of what they write, but also because of what they don’t write and the ignorance, the prejudice that that displays.”
Who can argue with that, I certainly can’t. Of course rent a mouth David Torrance has had his say, he has blocked me on twitter so grabbed this from another twitter user.
Alex Salmond is not taking a shot at free expression but at the liars who call themselves journalists and for that they should be ashamed. The simple reality is the media in Scotland by and large is broken, broken beyond repair. Alex Salmond is 100% correct and I support his stance all the way.
