It is proposed that DirectScot adopts a ‘facts only’ approach to delivering news from the public sector in Scotland.
The DirectScot news service aims to present news by sticking strictly to the facts and eschewing additional commentary, description or embellishment. This is intended to create a distinctive DirectScot identity that encompasses the broad spectrum of public service information but not from any one organisation’s individual perspective.
Here are a few examples of news headlines from the public sector in Scotland that illustrate the point.
|Original headline||DirectScot says|
|Disabled charities funding boost set to help thousands||Disabled charities get £700,000 to improve advice on offer|
|Scots living in better homes||Scottish House Condition Survey (SHCS) for 2010, published|
|Significant reduction in youth crime continues||30 per cent drop in youth crime recorded in Glasgow|
