Rupert Murdoch is reportedly set to launch a new US newspaper, called The Daily, which will only be available to read on ipads. New York media commentator Emily Bell and FT journalist Tim Bradshaw discuss whether an ipad-only paper could be a viable alternative to newspapers.

She discusses working for free and her part in securing a promise from the Liberal Democrats to stop detaining the children of asylum seekers.
