Regulate the Press
1. There is a lack of diversity in newspapers
2. Editors and specialist journalist are cut for the sake of speed and revelations
3. The Press Complains Commission should police the ethical Code of Practice far more actively and rigourously so that Newspapers are accountable
"Only when regulation is toughened will the discussions about ethics, and the related issues of training, qualifications, and pay, be taken seriously."

3 is tricky but if a newspaper loses in court over running a blatantly false story, shouldn't that reporter lose his job? The tabloids are a cancer of this country!

Agree with no.1 & 2 but no.3 three is tricky. I believe the Press Complaints Commission should be thrown on the pyre and replaced with a more people-orientated body. FIngers crossed no extremists from either end of the spectrum.
