Media

Not To Be Forgotten

We are still in the middle of the umpteenth nauseating shitfit thrown by the Unionist media. They usually throw the toys out of the pram in this manner when somone mildy criticises them for the untrue and vicious invective they throw at the independence movement every day.

One of the actors in this particular chimpanzee-fling is Lib Dem MSP Alex Cole-Hamilton. He is complaining to OfCom about the treatment of a particular “journalist” and how it is all unfair to treat the media in this way.

From how he and others are talking you’d think it was the case that the independence movement, with much less coverage and much less funding, was drowning out a frothing and almost all pervasive unionist media.

If this is the case (and it isn’t), how does this all square with this little message left by the libdems, for journalists who came to their party conference a while back? Furthermore, what does this little lovenote say about the impartiality of the media on the Scottish independence issue?

Sky Falling On Our Heads

Just very occasionally when you turn on Sky News it seems like their reporting can be reasonable, and sometimes it even seems to be the best of the bad bunch that we have.

The Scottish Independence Podcast 135 – Richard Walker of The National

ogsit1adFor the 135th episode of The Scottish Independence Podcast, I spoke with Richard Walker.

Richard is now the consulting editor of The National, but was also involved in the formation of that paper and the decision made at the Sunday Herald to begin openly supporting Scottish independence.

We talked about those decisions and why they were made,and how The National has been getting on.

As well as that, we tried to get our heads around some of the unusual media appointments that have been made recently, and what could or should be done about the media in Scotland more generally.

The Scottish Independence Podcast 130 – Inside The Common Space

FireShot Screen Capture #300 - 'Media Tweets by CommonSpace (@TheCommonSpace) I Twitter' - twitter_com_TheCommonSpace_media.pngFor the 130th episode of The Scottish Independence Podcast, I went along to the Glasgow office of the Common Space.

I tried to find out how the project got started, who works there, how they work and their plans for the future.

I spoke with Angela Haggerty, Ben Wray, Aidan McCrae, Stuart Rodger, Alice Muir, Maxine Blaine (who definitely isn’t Robin McAlpine) and Tiffany Kane.

CpKaZR7WIAAKIRoListening to these conversations, I think you’ll get a feel for who is working there and their motivations. Those motivations and ambitions are journalistic, political, economic, technological and others.

And what have ostriches got to do with anything?

Hope you enjoy.
