How to get self-regulation to work? The UK's high-profile inquiry into the culture, practices and ethics of the British press following the News International phone hacking scandal now has a regulator, IMPRESS, which is compliant with its recommendations. Good news? The (largely) industry-backed body IPSO does not think so. To shed some light on the dispute I would recommend listening to both organisations being interviewed head-to-head on The Media Show on BBC Radio 4 as well reading the Guardian's former editor Peter Preston, whose conciliatory piece argues that it is time to "quit the barricades and think anew about press regulation".
Being based in London, I sometimes miss interesting stories from other parts of the world so please get in touch over email or via twitter with any suggestions.
