Guardian editor Alan Rusbridger gives us the inside story on his paper's legal battle to report on Parliament.

The Comment Awards were the first to celebrate comment in all its forms, from newspapers to the blogosphere. We discuss whether comment is still the 'beating heart' of the press.

Silvio Berlusconi personally owns nine TV channels, and as the Italian prime minister he has indirect control over the 18 channels run by the country's state broadcaster as well. We hear about concerns for media pluralism in Italy.

Plus an update on how the first internet-only broadcast of an England football match worked, and reaction to the BBC securing highlights at the eleventh hour.
