    Well done Inforrm! You may be missing a few bits, but overall you are the best media law blog in the UK.

    It would be interesting to have a post on why none of the witnesses at Leveson from Associated Newspapers were questioned on what is in Nick Davies’ Flat Earth News regarding their newspaper group. They all got off too lightly. If I was a Core Participant, I would have sought to cross examine them on this and a few other matters.

    In his chapter titled, ‘Mail Aggression’, Nick Davies says on p. 365, “The first thing to recognise about the Daily Mail is that it is the most successful and powerful newspaper in Britain.” Leveson will be considered a whitewash if the only significant questioning they received was about a ‘plummy voiced woman’ and calling Hugh Grant’s allegation surrounding it a ‘mendacious smear’, as outrageous as that was. Yet, Nick highlights a catalogue of false stories in his book and they received significant mention in the infamous ‘Dark Arts’ chapter.

    Am I the only one who thinks they got an easy ride? Liz Hartley even finished with a half hour to spare.
