Podcast: From almost our only foreign correspondent

David Pratt

How should we in Scotland digest our international news? As the conventional Scottish newspaper industry grapples with the twin forces of intense competition from London titles and the Internet, foreign coverage has been marginalised.

One of the few Scottish based journalists to continue to cover foreign affairs, Herald contributing editor David Pratt, returned to the Newsnet studio to discuss the media experience with our regular host Derek Bateman. He points to a lively international media surviving on the European continent, working in a mixture of mainstream and digital channels. Their conversation broadens to embrace the impact of social media, as well as Brexit, Trump and the double standards the West applies in the Middle East.
