Media responsibility post “hackgate”

Venue House of Lords

Following the publication of the Leveson Report in November 2012, Parliamentarians, newspaper proprietors and the public have had several weeks to consider whether a blueprint has been laid which could ensure that in the future media organisations in the UK exercise their power responsibly. At this meeting, members discussed the controversial issues arising from the need to balance protecting privacy against media intrusion with the need to uphold the freedom of the press to report in the public interest with Shami Chakrabarti, Director of Liberty, Martin Moore, Director of The Media Standards Trust and Chris Blackhurst, the Editor of The Independent.
