Early yesterday morning Scotland’s first minister, Alex Salmond, held a lengthy Q&A with the Scottish, British and international news media in Edinburgh. It was one of his better performances in the referendum campaign, despite the overt animosity of the visiting contingent of London reporters. So given the comprehensive nature of the event it is quite extraordinary to see how supposedly non-partisan journalists from the major news groups in Britain have misrepresented and in some cases simply falsified their accounts of what happened. Watch the two video clips below for a stark example of Scottish reality versus British propagandizing, the first a live recording of one particular encounter during the event, the second a heavily edited description of it. Something is truly rotten in Britain’s media elites.
