Supporting Independent Scottish Media – Backing Bella 2021

Scotland needs a free press now more than ever. The media in UK is a mixture of the billionaire-owned press, the right-wing tabloids, poor public broadcasting and far worse to come with GB News planned by Andrew Neil and others reaching to the right to mimic America’s FOX News.

Bella tries to counter their disinformation and create a platform for multiple voices.

As I write we are 28% on the way to our target of £30,000 to support our network of freelance writers and other contributors. Many thanks all our readers.
