Why is it that the Guardian, Independent,vast swathes of the media, the obnoxious and rude Sarah Jane Mee, who is yet another of Sky News presenters with a biased and self opinionated attitude, and BBC "pundits", have such selective and distorted attitudes on this story?

I am no great fan of Nicola Sturgeon, but I do get very angry with the distortion of fact to suit personal or corporate biased opinions. None of these reporters even acknowledge that Carmichael lied and leaked the lie to the Telegraph in order to gain political advantage. If we must have reports and comments on the dirty tricks tactics of political parties, we should at least tell the story as it is, rather than as we would like it to be. Mr Carmichael said it was an error of judgement and he accepted "the details of the account are not correct".

"the details of the account are not correct".


The former Scottish Secretary's reputation has now been tarnished; the damage done, as so often in politics, not by the leak but by the lie.The lies and distortions to cover up the lies only make it worse
