Scottish Independence and Scotland's Future
Electric Scotland Choice of News Sources

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 BBC.

I am also concerned about 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 read by my visitors.  So that is why I don't often link to a Scotsman article or Telegraph or Times articles.

If you are looking for pro Brexit and Trump stories then the Daily Express site is a good one but it is very biased and their headlines don't even 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 Daily Record for purely Scottish content.

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 pay wall.

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:
