Indy: more promised than just ‘Scottish ink’

THE Independent begins printing in Cardonald from today, and allmediascotland can reveal that, in coming weeks, the move will be accompanied by an increase in Scottish content in the paper.

Contrary to reports that the initiative would merely be a production exercise, sources at Independent News and Media tell us that there will be a drive to offer readers more journalism that originates from this side of the Border.

“We won’t be pretending that we are a Scottish newspaper,” said the source. “But Scottish readers will be able to enjoy more articles from Scotland in the pages of The Independent, a title renowned and respected around the world for the quality of its journalism.”
