  1. The demise of the once high quality “The Scotsman” is a sad situation regarding Scottish journalism.
    Johnston Press’ demonic pursuit of an anti-SNP agenda across the news, politics and business sections of the paper, in both printed and online versions, have caused the once great institution to suffer a fatal loss of credibility in the eyes of many rational and reasonable Scots.
    Unfortunately, it seems that rather than try to explain, debate or review the news that social media can deliver within minutes of events, The Scotsman seems to be content to provide a simplified summary hours or even days later, with an added twist of anti-SNP propaganda wherever and whenever possible.
