Glenn CampbellDo you trust BBC Scotland?  If you’re an independence supporter the answer is probably no.

If you gave it some thought though you’d qualify your reply by separating BBC Scotland’s news and current affairs department with the rest.

Mistrust of the BBC in Scotland stems from the station’s presentation of news … political news.

But even that mistrust isn’t across the board.  Not everyone in the News and Current Affairs department is viewed with suspicion.

Ask a Yesser for his or her opinion of Isabel Fraser and it’s likely it will be positive.  John Beattie is often cited as an example of someone who had a good referendum.  James Cook didn’t provoke the same outrage as his colleague Glenn Campbell throughout the indyref1 campaign.
