Max Mosley, Jonathan Ross, Russell Brand and Baby P
Veteran Daily Mail Editor Paul Dacre said in a speech earlier this year that the press had a duty to moralise. And 2008 has thrown up no shortage of stories on which papers have taken a strong moral stance. But should they? On the Media Show this week, Steve Hewlett is joined by Anne McElvoy of the London Evening Standard, Emily Bell of The Guardian and David Aaronovitch of The Times. They take a look at Max Mosley’s privacy action against The News of the World, the coverage of the death of Baby P in Haringey, and the BBC’s handling of what has become known as “Sachsgate” or the Ross/Brand affair.
