UK Freedom of the Press Is Dead!!
Freedom of the press in the UK is basically dead. There will be a new "regulator" or Minister of the Press. This also will effect the internet.

Press regulation deal struck by parties

Slowly, but surely, all rights are being eroded on a global scale.
Sad world on the horizon.

Pity people on here don't read to well.

These new regulations affect the untruthful deformation of individuals. i.e phone tapping and dustbin crawling of innocent individuals

They do not affect run of the mill daily news gathering in any way. Big business and politicians are still fair game as long as the stories about them ARE TRUE, something the UK press it not to cleaver at in the past.

Let's hope your assessment is correct, but if you go back in history and see when such regulations were set up, nothing good ever came of it.
The gov't should not be involved in regulating the press, in my opinion. That should be left up to the civil courts if someone has a beef with a journalist, etc.

And another one who cant read..
There is no "Corporate" crime of voice and data interception of private individuals.
How do you think governments and GCHQ operate legally you dick.

Only individual journalists were prosecuted for the phone hacking where it could be proved. The papers only paid out ex-Gracia payment to avoid claims going to court.

A under the counter deal was done with the "Hacked Off" group which saw the News of the World get closed as it was cheaper in the long run for both sides.

Do you see the Sun newspaper being prosecuted for the latest revelation.

Course not.

This is because of Piers M****n authorizing illegal phone taps. Yes Mr Righteous himself brought or helped bring this about.

It's illegal under RIPA , but don't worry about small details. It's why Glen Mulcaire was sentenced to prison, can't really be sent down without committing a crime. ( although some can testify differently)

Rebekka Brooks, sending texts to David Cameron telling him how much she loves him and shit.

when our press chose a political party to promote and defend our press also died.

the media in this country were charged with a very important job by our founding fathers...the press was to keep public servants honest.

when you hear of a journalist ATTENDING a Washington party rather than COVERING a Washington party you know they have crossed the line and have given up the right to be called an honest journalist.
