The Language of Negativity

The National (Published 09/09/15)

Dear Sir,
I was disappointed to see the National (Tuesday 8th September) refer to supporters of Catalan independence as “separatists”. Given how the unionist media have used this word in the past to create a comparison with armed groups in unstable countries I’d have thought the National would have been more sensitive to its negative connotations. Could we perhaps see pro-independence movements in other countries referred to in a more positive light in future?
Yours Sincerely,
James Cassidy
