A lively public debate, held by the Advertiser at McSence’s conference suite recently, threw up many more unanswered questions.

To keep the debate going, we’ll post a new question on this website every day and open it up for discussion.

Here’s today’s question, from Christine McInally.

With reference to Kevin McKenna’s article in last Sunday’s Observer newspaper, in which he reminds us that Scotland has 37 national and local newspapers, only 5 of which are owned in Scotland, and none of them support Independence. In view of this how can the Yes campaign and its supporters, be confident the playing field is level?

(Editor’s note: I can assure readers that the Advertiser is entirely neutral on this issue, as it is with all political matters)
