Royal Charter: Constitutional Ransacking of British Journalism

The Court has rejected the request for an injunction to stop it, so the Privy Council is now set to make a decision on the cross-party supported Royal Charter. Tim Crook of Goldsmiths, University of London explains why he believes that to approve this Charter would amount to a power grab by political elite. 

British journalism has been battered by […]

Industry-Proposed Royal Charter Further from Leveson than Anything Before

On 25 April a large group of publishers proposed their version of a Royal Charter for a new press regulator.

When Leveson published his Report at the end of November our research showed that the press presented the story as one mainly about freedom of the press and the struggle by hacking victims for vindication and protection in the future.
