Interesting Record: Scotsman, The;

"Because of The Scotman's 'independence' and combination of 'moderation with zeal,' it challenged corruption before 1830, promoting Liberalism avant la lettre." The commemorator boasted, "to be a reader of the Scotsman was to be an 'enemy of the Government.'" Moreover, "such unrespectable antigovernment origins had yielded by 1886 to a thoroughly domesticated claim to facilitate 'popular self-government'" (Hampton, Visions of the Press in Britain, 1850-1950).

“The Scotsman is the organ of the Voluntary Dissenters, and is characterised by its violent, and even maniac, or rather demoniac, attacks upon the church and the clergy" (Fraser's, p.566).
