A farewell to the BBC
Leveson: Press and politicians still seek solution
For months, the Leveson Inquiry dominated the news, as a succession of high-profile witnesses gave evidence - actors Hugh Grant and Sienna Miller, singer Charlotte Church; the parents of Milly Dowler and Madeleine McCann; editors, proprietors, police chiefs, politicians.
The climax came at the end of November, when Lord Justice Leveson published his 2,000-page report in the heart of Westminster. A few days later Prime Minister David Cameron summoned national newspaper editors to Downing Street, demanding urgent action.
BBC Newsnight: Entwistle says 'wrong' to air film
After weeks under fire for not broadcasting Newsnight's report of child abuse allegations against Jimmy Savile, the BBC has now had to apologise for a child abuse investigation it did broadcast.
This second episode is even more damaging than the first.
BBC making 'sensible' plans for director general's exit
Today's news is no great surprise.
It's been suggested for some time that Mark Thompson would step down after the Olympics and no date has yet been given.
News International to sell Wapping site, publisher says
Long before the current phone-hacking scandal, Rupert Murdoch's papers were at the centre of another controversy - and it made Wapping famous the world over.

BBC considers Asian Network U-turn
Why can't the BBC make up its mind? That will be many people's reaction to news that it's contemplating a second U-turn over plans to close a digital radio network.
It's also reported to be considering cuts to its local radio output, and replacing BBC2 daytime shows with news, and ditching Wimbledon or Formula 1.
Lord Patten's BBC Trust role approved by MPs
Lord Patten brings a wealth of experience to the job.
As a former cabinet minister, EU commissioner and governor of Hong Kong, he is used to dealing with bureaucracies and tough opponents.
Lord Patten quizzed by MPs over BBC Trust job
Asked when he'd last watched EastEnders, Lord Patten said even longer ago than he'd last had a McDonalds. One MP said "You hardly watch any telly and the telly you watch is hardly watched by anyone else!" Lord Patten replied that he didn't feel any shame in asserting Reithian principles, and the BBC should stand for the most civilised aspects of being British.
He rejected some MPs' suggestions that the BBC had shown institutional bias over issues such as Europe and the Middle East but said the Corporation had been wrong to let executives get paid "as if they were at Barclays".
Murdoch BSkyB takeover decision defended by government
If the deal goes ahead - and that's still not certain because BSkyB says News Corp must offer more for its shares - viewers shouldn't notice any difference.
Sky News prizes its reputation for independence and impartiality, and Jeremy Hunt says that will be enhanced under the deal.
