How to win friends and influence people

CensorshipA very reliable source tells me that after my last most recent appearance on Isles FM the local SNP started complaining to the directors of Isles FM Ltd about 'bias' and threatened to get businesses to pull their advertising if Isles FM continued to allow me to appear without them having the right of reply.

Can anyone confirm or refute this claim?

Update: Isles FM would like to make it clear that there was no direct threat of the removal of advertising, but that the possibility of the loss of advertising revenue was discussed.

It would therefore appear that I was misinformed about any direct threats by any party.

Don't really see what is wrong individuals wanting to hear a fair and two sided argument.

However if the local SNP were involved in actions like that, as an organisations, I would hope they would be severely reprimanded by whoever looks at actions of a political party. Possibly even a fine.

Well, the local SNP have now tasted blood, haven't they Angus? But this is of course interfering with freedom of the press.

interesting... the SNP see it as bias, and yet you aren't (to my knowledge) a member of any political party... perhaps they are frightened you'll start your own!
