I know everyone’s bored of this but I think Stuart Cosgrove and Eamonn O’Neill basically nail the whole Daisley fiasco in the audio below.
In light of the Herald’s Tom Gordon flagging up this nonsense from Private Eye – “the Scottish NUJ is controlled by apologists for the nationalist state” – it’s worth re-publishing. While the commentators are good – and BBC Scotland should be congratulated for them – the host John Beattie does seem to be struggling with the subject.
The idea that the SNP has ‘unchallenged power’ in Scotland – and uses this to stop critical journalism is such paranoid fantasy it’s (almost) comic.
