The Scottish Independence Podcast 111 – Prof John Robertson

ByUIGsVCcAE4-UQ“Good Morning Scotland were almost shameless”.

It has rightly been mentioned in some quarters that before we proceed to indyref 2, the Yes side are going to have to seriously look at what could have been different in indyref 1, and look at how to improve or counteract. In that spirit then I spoke to Professor John Robertson about the book he has written focusing on the media coverage of the referendum and the report on this year’s general election.

and the election report here – Propaganda or Professionalism

CAzl1BYWoAEzuIgWe talked about how bias can be caused by different factors and how it can manifest itself in different ways, John explained why he thinks devolving the BBC is not perhaps the solution we are hoping for and, as you can see above, we had a few words about Good Morning Scotland.

Hope you enjoy…
