Daily Record Ignores Craig Murray's Reporting, Goes After Craig Murray Instead
by Greum Maol Stevenson
As discussed here previously, Scottish mainstream media made no mention of Craig Murray's being removed by police from the High Court in Edinburgh during Alex Salmond's trial. Since then, Murray has published a J'accuse that, in forensic detail, makes a compelling case that there is a conspiracy against Salmond.
And apparently not just Salmond.
Paul Hutcheon, political editor at the Daily Record, has investigated Murray's home and his personal finances and published a misleading article, without addressing any of his concerns. The paper also published a photo of Murray's home.
In his article in response, Murray writes:
The key point is not one mainstream media journalist has even attempted to refute the facts of my article J’accuse. It is packed with facts. Might not the political editor of the Daily Record better spend his time researching the conspiracy against Alex Salmond, rather than threatening an independent journalist for the crime of doing journalism? ...What I am now waiting for is all these people to step in and condemn the publishing of my home and the subsequent risk to the security of my wife and family, with as much vigour as they today defended the privacy of the Edinburgh third house of the Head of MI6.
