Another tedious whine from David Torrance demanding that even intellectually indolent and wilfully malicious ‘journalists’ should be allowed to act with total impunity. Quite where he gets this notion that the traditional media has some sort of special status remains a mystery. And the suggestion that our elected representatives have a duty to protect ‘journalists’ from being held to account is every bit as preposterous as it seems.
So long as the mainstream media serve established power, they must be treated as the servants of established power. They must be challenged as established power must be challenged. Having declined or forsaken a role as the voice of democratic dissent, they are not entitled to demand uncritical regard from the owners of that voice.
Having so signally failed in their duty to the people of Scotland and to democracy, the British media don’t get to insist on loyalty from those whom they have betrayed. They are not our friends. We have absolutely no reason to trust them. We have every reason to hold them in deep suspicion. We have an absolute right to challenge their lies and distortions.
Know your place, David Torrance! Know your place!
