I do think there's a potential win in this situation, in the shape of an independent complaints commission that has real teeth to apply substantial enough punishments to transgressors "pour encourager les autres", as Voltaire put it.  If one thing has become abundantly clear from the inquiry it is that we can't trust the press to be self-governing, so the PCC cannot continue to exist in its current form.  Equally however, the though of a statutory system linked to government control is very definitely breaking the butterfly on the wheel.  Having said that, if I have to hear one more tabloid editor railing against the undermining of democracy that such an attack on the free press would bring, I might just throw my support behind it.  They're trying to come across like they're Woodward and Bernstein, exposing national scandals on a daily basis, rather than rifling through celebs' bins or trying for that upskirt pic outside nightclubs.


Exactly. The tabloid media in particular are trying to spin it as an attack on press freedom etc., but it's not about government controlling the press. It's about making sure they are held accountable when they fuck up or break the law (which at the moment they aren't), which seems entirely fair and sensible given the depredations they've sunk to (and often been completely unapologetic for) in the past.

Will be interesting to see what the government implement on the back of this report, and whether it has any effect on press behaviour.

If one ever needed heads-up on how terrified the press is against any kind of external agency telling them not to be scum, and how strong their vested interest is, try and find any objective discussion in them about Leveson. They control the access to info still - is it any wonder people worry about them?

When you read tragic stories like this

You sort of feel that the print media SHOULD have its own OFCOM. I struggle to see why our visual media have a proper watchdog but our print media can go off and do whatever.
