I see TV news anywhere in
the world as being very biased and so I usually do not watch TV News to
get news on what is going on. In fact these so called news
channels are so biased that a lot of them totally ignore some meaningful
news where the local viewers should be rightfully proud of what is going
on but due to biased reporting is not even reported.
Take for example the
recent breakthrough in Israel with the UAE and Bahrain which was led by
the USA. Rightfully hailed as a major breakthrough by the Trump
administration it was not even covered by CNN. You simply can't
accept CNN as a genuine news channel any longer. Even the old
owner of CNN when asked where he was watching news actually said the

pay walls on various news web sites and so don't usually use them for
sources as I am not going to link to material that possibly can't be

make sense when you actually read the articles. That said the do carry
lots of information on Scottish Independence and on the SNP and also
stories on the EU neither of which you will read in the Scottish Press.
I will link to an
occasional story from the

I see in the New Year the
Spectator will be launching a new news channel and having watched some
of their reporting on YouTube I am hopeful this will become a trusted
source in the future. That said current information suggets that their
web site will have a pay wall.
Pretty well all Scottish
Newspapers are left wing and support the SNP which means that the
Scottish people are getting biased reporting and so can't be trusted in
getting to the facts.
That said I do enjoy a
read of the Sunday
Post from the DC Thomson stable. All their other titles now have a
So given my issues with
TV News and newspapers I have started to rely on other sources to get my
news and the sources I now mostly use are:

They are very biased against both Brexit and Trump but they can carry
some quality articles on other topics.
They do carry stories about the SNP and the EU which are rarely covered
