Ruth Davidson and the BBC … What’s going on?
In September last year I published an article in which I highlighted the Scottish media’s refusal to pursue Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson on several controversial issues.
It was clear to me that blunders and gaffes committed by the MSP were not resulting in damaging headlines or difficult questions.
The article, Protecting Ruth, contained the following paragraph.
All leading Scottish Unionist politicians enjoy a ‘blind eye’ approach from the traditional Scottish media. Most of course, given the party’s domination of Scottish politics then its place as the main Unionist opposition to the SNP, have been from Labour. Ruth Davidson has inherited the mantle of ‘Unionist saviour’ and the ‘media privileges’ that come with it.
Having replaced Labour as the main pro-Union force at Holyrood, the Scottish Conservative leader was now enjoying the trappings of ‘office’.
