Nobody’s asking the National to lie about suspected care home deaths from coronavirus but given that they have become the current propaganda tool of the Unionist media in sharp contrast to most UK/English media which are concealing the many care home deaths there from their audiences, in the interests of ‘national’ unity, around the plucky PM, might they just report something else?

There are a million stories out there and that was just one of them. If concerned about the public’s right to know, they must have known their pals in the Herald, just across the room, were onto it.

They probably think they’re just being so ‘professional’, unlike us nasty cybernats, giving a platform to those unconvincing converts, Fry, McKenna and Macwhirter and joining in enthusiastically with the Salmond-baiting.

Today’s story is, however, only the latest in signs of their own unconvincing performance. See these:

Both BBC Scotland and the ‘pro-Independence’ Sunday National use unpublished or unreliable evidence to accuse Scottish schools of ‘unlawful’ actions
