Daily Record in Gullibility Shocker !

Last night Twitter was buzzing with news that the Daily Record were about to reveal some shocking news about Rangers in a five page spread. The story seemed to centre around the mortgaging of RFC season ticket money for the next few years.
Well the story finally broke this morning and not only has Craig Whyte mortgaged off the season book money to the tune of £24m but he has also neglected to pay the VAT man around £6m.
However after reading their exclusive it seems to me that the Daily Record have basically admitted to being duped by Mr Whyte’s PR gurus about his actual wealth not only that but they did not even bother investigating that what they were being fed was true.
So much for investigative journalism in main stream old media. The fact that we Celtic fans have been better informed about RFC’s dangerous position via Phil Mac Goilla Bhain and Rangers Tax Case speaks volumes about the laptop loyal.
Anyway we thought we’d help the record out with a wee picture for Tomorrows edition.

  1. That’s exactly the point i made earlier today. “Just call him a Billionaire”…..”ok then, sure thing”!
    FFS! Did it not even cross their tiny minds to ask for that statement to be substantiated? Did they not do any investigating into this “Billionaires” wealth?
    The Daily Record have simply admitted that they were told to describe a man as a “Billionaire” with absolutely no evidence to back it up and like little lapdogs, they did just that!
    If that is not an admission of being absolutely, completely and utterly inept at journalism, i don’t know what it!
    They were fed the party line and they ran with it. Hoping it would be true!
    As you say, it speaks absolute volumes about the Scottish media.

    1. All the Record are doing is backing another horse. They will still spin pro Rangers propaganda only now it will be from Dave King and Paul Murray. How they are going to sell King as some sort of ‘clean’ business man is beyond me but I suppose they will give it a go as long as they can sell papers to the RFC market.
