LEVESON INQUIRY:
CULTURE, PRACTICE
AND ETHICS OF THE PRESS

Competitive Pressures on the Press and the Impact on Journalism

Lord Justice Leveson held a series of seminars in October 2011 to set the matters that the Inquiry is looking at into context and to provide a wide range of perspectives on the issues. The seminars were attended by an invited audience including editors and journalists from all the main national newspapers, academics, regulators, lawyers and those who feel they have been treated unfairly by the press. There were short presentations on the key issues, but most of each seminar was discussion among the invited audience.

‘The Competitive pressures on the press and their impact on journalists’ looked at the market in which the printed press operate and the pressures that changes in the market are putting on the industry. It considered the extent to which those pressures affect editorial decisions and looked at the pressures on journalists on a day to day basis and where those pressures come from. This seminar helped the Inquiry to understand how newspapers work and what the internal and external pressures are and how they differ across the market.

This event was held from 9.30am – 1.00pm on Thursday 6 October in the QEII Conference Centre in Westminster.
