So was the mainstream media in Scotland deeply involved in a dark anti-independence conspiracy ? Or is the truth much more simple to explain in a media market that is under assault on all fronts and struggling to survive in its current form?
Paul Holleran, Scottish Organiser of the National Union of Journalists, had as close a view as anyone during the height of the referendum campaign. On the one hand his job includes an almost-daily battle to preserve jobs, and on the other he had members appealing for support as they faced alleged threats and intimidation.
Paul provides a unique insight into what was going on behind the scenes, and sheds some light on what it all means for the post-referendum media, including its “new” arrivals.
Also speaking to Derek in this podcast is Ivan McKee, a business leader judged by most to have had a “good referendum” on behalf of the pro-Yes organisation Business for Scotland.
Ivan discusses the current political situation, and what it means for us all, including the business community.
