Abstract or description

There are three key issues that consistently raise their head during discussions about regulation:How does the regulator oblige newspapers to accept its rulings? What criteria should be used to choose which publishers are covered?Is the new body a regulator or a complaints handler – in other words, what powers should it have? One overwhelming feature of the debate is its very limited nature outside of Leveson’s courtroom. Publishers are keen to get their version of the regulator, a version that has been pressed strongly in many newspapers, but there have been limited opportunities to hear other views. Here Journalism Education identifes two very different ways of handling the press. One from former AJE chair, Mick Temple, looks at a press without regulation whilst Chris Frost, the present chair, puts the case for a strong regulator.
