The Only ‘Freedom Of the Press’ That Fleet Street Wants Is The Freedom To Distort, Mislead And Exploit.

Please sign the Hacked Off petition here calling for the Leveson report to be implemented in full.

Mr ‘Slippery’ Cameron vowed that unless the report was “bonkers” he would see it implemented in full.  Questioned by Andrew Marr in September as to whether that remained his position he said “Absolutely”.  Now he’s been got at by the press barons who are flexing their muscles, saturating our country with their propaganda which blatantly misleads about the urgent necessity for independent regulation.

On seven occasions in 70 years the press has been given a ‘last chance’ to continue with self regulation. Every single time they have proved to be unfit to do so.  Are we going to allow these self-serving bullies off the hook yet again?

The furious misinformation and spin flooding our streets, trying to frighten and intimidate with nonsensical allegations about state control of the press is the dishonesty and manipulation of Fleet Street exemplified.

Independent regulation, backed by statute, is essential.  As proposed it will enshrine a newspaper industry as  independent from the state.  It is a necessary and progressive move in support of freedom and liberty and against the corruption and vested interests of the media megalomaniacs.

  1. Billy Wilder’s screenplay adaptation of “Front Page” (1973) was based on the exploits of a Chicago Examiner reporter. The idea appealed to Wilder, a newspaperman in his younger days, who recalled, “A reporter was a glamorous fellow in those days, the way he wore a hat, and a raincoat, and a swagger, and his camaraderie with fellow reporters, with the local police, always hot on the tail of tips from them and from the fringes of the underworld. What has changed? Wake up, and smell the coffee. They are all in it together.
