Gordon Young: Scottish Press is ‘risk averse’

THE Scottish Press doesn’t need a regulator to prevent it from being reckless, because it is already being ‘risk averse’ – according to the editor of The Drum media and marketing magazine.

Writes Gordon Young: “In my view, the real challenge facing Scottish newspapers is not their reckless risk taking but their tendency to be risk averse.”

And he doesn’t hold back, citing various alleged tales he believes have been ducked by the Scottish Press.
