Voicing the Public Interest
Listening To The Public On Press Regulation
The phone-hacking scandal and the subsequent
Leveson Inquiry have opened up a national
debate on press ethics, central to which is the
notion of the public interest.
This report sets out to examine how this
ubiquitous term has been used and understood
in a variety of legal and ethical contexts, and
presents the results of new polling that explores
public attitudes to the public interest. It suggests
how the public interest might be better defined
to improve the quality of journalism and argues
that to secure the public interest in any future
regulatory settlement, the public’s voice needs to
be heard − and given stronger representation. It
presents a range of measures to achieve this.
