A campaign aimed at highlighting what it describes as BBC misinformation has raised over fifty per cent of its £8500 target in just over a day.
The group Inform Scotland aims to erect billboards across Scotland advertising a new website which holds articles and other content which cast doubt on BBC claims it is impartial.
The site, InformScotland.com, contains videos and articles from well-known pro-independence bloggers and writers.
A statement from the group says: “As ordinary people tired of BBC distortion, we want to fund giant billboards across Scotland drawing everyone’s attention to the ways in which they are being lied to.
“We know that a significant minority of people in Scotland still trust the BBC as a publicly-funded broadcaster, and are quite unaware as to how they are being misled
“We want to give people a bridge to alternative narratives to what they regularly hear on BBC Scotland or read in the so-called ‘Main Stream Media’.”
The initial appeal target will fund ten giant billboards. However the group plan to commission more should their appeal allow.
The project followed meetings amongst Yes activists earlier this year in which several initiatives were discussed. The organisation ‘Inform Scotland’ is a non-profit company limited by guarantee registered in Glasgow.
