With out regulation,who would the press be acountable to,or are they just another quango in disguise,and just become another untouchable.

No, it needs proper regulation by an independent group, but not the state. Perhaps it should be shifted to come under OFCOMs purview?!

Certainly NOT, because its the State who usually have all the skeletons in the closet & the State who has so much to hide? The press doesnt need gagging, Even our Local politicians should be more transparent,there is far to much goes hidden from Our community?

This is typical of the press scaremongering after Leveson. The proposal is for an independent body [not the state] to regulate the press as they have shown for decades that the PCC is toothless and they do not want self-regulation to actually work. The statutory side is designed to ensure the body does its job properly and, what is rarely reported, Leveson recommended, for the first time, legislation to protect the freedom of the press.

Is this what journalists are so afraid of?
