IFJ: Time has come for PCC to demonstrate the value of journalism


The International Federation of Journalists has issued its own report into the Press Complaints Commission and new allegations about phone-hacking at the News of the World made by The Guardian.

The report by someone called Jean-Paul Marthoz, appears to be little more than a rounding-up for the story so far with some commentary and criticism thrown in.

The Belgian journalist and writer concludes: “The time has come for partisans of self-regulation to demonstrate the value of journalism as a public good…media’s real commitment to the highest ethical standards in a profession that is a key pillar of a vibrant and principled democracy.”
