TWO sources of ‘alternative news and commentary’ in Scotland are joining forces. The polemical online magazine, Bella Caledonia, and the nationalist news service, Newsnet Scotland, are collaborating in the run-up to the May Holyrood election.
Spokesperson, Andrew Hardie, commented: “Bella Caledonia and Newsnet are delighted to announce a new collaboration, where we will be commissioning articles and sharing analysis and editorial content together. The combined traffic and new funds to pay contributors mean that there is a new dynamic merging in the Scottish political coverage. We welcome submissions from journalists looking for a fresh approach to political coverage.”
Hardie continues: “The next six months will be crucial for progressive Scotland.”
Contributor, Gus Abraham, said: “The old media doesn’t have the strength and dominance it once had. The old press power as an agenda-setting force is weakening and once credible national newspapers are often seen as discredited as the Lib-Lab-Tory agenda they prop up.
“The participative media in Scotland is stronger than ever – with a surge of high-quality online content in the last year. Bella will remain the place for longer articles – with a stronger focus on experimental culture – while Newsnet Scotland will stay as the place for daily news updates (and more).”
