Our newest publication: Media Regulation and Democracy

I’m delighted to be able to announce the publication of our new report Media Regulation & Democracy, a collection of thinkpieces on that topic that we have produced with the kind support of the Carnegie UK Trust, and which can now be downloaded as a PDF (and will be up on Scribd shortly).

Since the piece is a collection from different contributors, it doesn’t count as blowing our own trumpet to say that they have produced a fascinating collection of thoughts on a vital democratic issue. The contents are:

  • Media Regulation and Democracy (by me and Paul Connolly)
  • What should be regulated, and how? (by Paul Connolly)
  • Health reporting: the case for change (by Miles Taylor)
  • Hey! Regulator! Leave those Hyperlocals alone! (by Damian Radcliffe)
  • How to clean up the mess (by Kevin Anderson)
  • Rectifying the flaw (by Dave Boyle)
  • A press regulator without teeth is no press regulator at all (by Suw Charman-Anderson)

Enjoy reading, and don’t hang back from adding your own comments. You can comment here or (if you want to contribute at greater length) let us know you’d like to write a response post on the blog.
