Editors' meeting, Hacked Off, NewsCorp

Duration:
30 minutes
First broadcast:
Wednesday 05 December 2012

In today's programme with Steve Hewlett:

Professor Brian Cathcart of Hacked Off argues for implementing the Leveson recommendations in full - an argument backed by the group's online petition that now has more than 140,000 signatures. What does he make of the industry and government response so far?

Independent editor Chris Blackhurst reports from the latest meeting of editors, convened this morning to discuss the industry's progress on plans for self-regulation. Have they agreed on something that the government could back?

Sarah Ellison, contributing editor of Vanity Fair and Douglas McCable, head of print media at Enders Analysis, look at the planned changes in News Corp. With the publishing business, including the UK newspapers, to be put into a new company separate from the much more substantial entertainment side, what is the future for The Sun and the Times newspapers?

The producer is Simon Tillotson.
