Leveson reforms, editorial freedom, and press discussion of ordinary members of the public

Abstract:

The paper assesses the impact of Lord Justice Leveson’s recommendations for press regulation on ordinary members of the public. With reference to cases such as the treatment of the transgender primary school teacher Lucy Meadows by the Daily Mail, he argues that any future regulator will struggle to achieve any meaningful change to the ‘cultural indifference to individual privacy and dignity’ shown by sections of the press, given Leveson’s failure to clearly define, yet insistence on preserving, press partisanship.
