The Scotsman messed up on 9 January when they tweeted the news of the demolition of Craiginches Prison in Aberdeen. They tweeted “Demolition starts on prison where last man in Scotland was hanged”. Made one wonder why those lassies had become so aggressive. Were they upset that the Yes vote didn’t prevail?  Almost immediately The Scotsman sent a new tweet reheaded “Demolition starts on setting of last Scots hanging”, so they obviously recognized their error. They’ve yet to change the first line of the story though.
