[snipped from article]

"I'm afraid the world isn't like that anymore, the newspaper world is too cowed, too nervous, too jumpy.

"What Leveson is doing is killing investigative journalism in this country. Investigative journalism, in the main, for decades, has been done in the mid-market and the tabloid press."

@admin. You wild, wild woman!
@ candyfloss - Ian Hislop said during his session at the Leveson exactly that. He said there already was perfectly good legislation in place, no new legislation was needed. We're going to get it anyway. Why not give all of us free Prozac instead? We've been sleepwalking to 1984 for years.
Sites like CmoMM give me hope that not all is lost. roses

I don't know about that, I'm old enough to be his mum

Don't know how someone taking a few sneaky pics of his friend and selling them to the press is investigative journalism.

Investigate journalism died years before Leveson when the UK media stopped reporting on the facts surrounding Maddie choosing, instead, to publish TM propaganda.

Admin, I think what was meant was that the UK papers are running scared of printing anything which might result in legal action against them, as a consequence of Leveson. Not that the pictures of Harry were in any way regarded as investigative journalism! Although those present at the time might have thought differently lol!
