Media Broth: Medium rare

THE error has since been rectified, but the first edition of the new, pro-Scots independence newspaper, The National, contained a vital omission.

And this contest of mainly marketing folk ended 12-12, as reported here.

“…but just before kick-off the pressure on the rickety benches got too much and an entire row collapsed, causing The Scotsman journo’s laptop to crash to the ground. Honestly, if the public knew the duress under which these match reports get written…”
