As support for Yes reaches 50% is the Scotsman website changing sides?


Look at that! Six out of the seven top stories are broadly sympathetic to the SNP. Is this a last-ditch attempt to get readers? All their trolls will be heading across to the Scottish Daily Mail to find their natural environment.

NOOOOOO Now they print an article by Brian Wilson which I agree with! What’s going on? Is this psychological warfare to drive us mad?

Save me, readers!

    Interesting – the bbc news website is often slightly less obviously aligned to the unionist cause as well. Maybe website controllers are slightly younger and slightly less controlled than the tedious mainstream employees.

      Yes, I think that’s a reasonable idea. Maybe, also, they know the online audience is less easy to influence?

    Don’t let them kid you John , leopards don’t change their spots , maybe their readership has dropped like a stone in the last few days now that people of all parties see them for what they are , a disgrace to Scotland ! .

    There is more value in the Scotsman website giving a fair wag of the dog’s tail to the Indy cause because it receives approx. 138,000 daily visitors whereas the actual print paper only has approx. 13,000 takers (some households will involve several readers – but the point is sound).

    However galling it is for the Indy cause to have constant misrepresentations (and downright fabrications) on the news-stand ‘headlines’ there is probably greater long-term benefit in winning the battle on the website coverage.

    The real problem with the print press ‘headlines’ is that the beeb news/current affairs dept. base their day’s coverage on the print (britnat misrepresentations) ‘headlines’. The britnat spokespeople then quote the beeb ‘quoting’ the print headlines and the following day’s headlines are ready packaged with ‘quotes’ from the brit politicos and on the merry old carousel keeps turning.
