As Britain ponders recommendations from the Leveson Inquiry into the culture, practice and ethics of the press, newspapers anticipate a moment that will define for the future the appropriate relationship between free speech and accountable government. The hacking scandal has exposed the depths some journalists plumbed in pursuit of sellable stories. These actions have taught Britons that newspapers can deprive people of their rights and dignity as well as speaking truth to power. Journalism faces a crisis from which it will not escape unchanged.Tim Luckhurst, Head of the Centre for Journalism at the University of Kent, explains the case against statutory intervention in the regulation of the press.
