The Telegraph's Luke Edwards has been banned from Newcastle Utd after he wrote a story the club didn't like and the paper refused to retract it. He tells Steve why other reporters told him to quiet about this and, with Ashling O'Connor of The Times, discusses the challenges of reporting on football when clubs threaten to ban reporters in this way.

The Queen's Speech is today. Labour's Harriet Harman says it's time for legislation on issues like media ownership and calls on the government to act. What would she do to resolve the disagreements over press regulation?

From Moscow, The Guardian's Miriam Elder reports on the start of the trial of Alexander Lebedev, who Steve then speaks to on his mobile to ask if a conviction and jail would affect his papers - The Independent, Independent on Sunday, The i and London Evening Standard.
