Media Bias

Something I hadn’t expected during the referendum on Scottish Independence is the blatant bias shown by the mainstream media. In the past I’ve always considered the mainstream media (the BBC especially) to be pretty much neutral in its political reporting. Not so now.

Okay, I always knew that most newspapers carry an agenda biased towards left or right wing politics, but this across-the-board misrepresentation and misreporting of events, claims and counter claims, for me, beggars belief.

I’m left feeling somewhat duped by these establishments and embarrassed by the naivety I’ve previously shown in my belief in fairness.

This has affected me so much that now I find myself questioning almost every story reported on television news.
