The Times: Treat journalism as a profession with its own ethical charter

Spencers Solicitors Director, John Spencer, writes to the editor of The Times on the recent Leveson report into press standards. Calling for the media to treat itself as a profession, prioritising duty to the public over profit.

"The solution to the issues highlighted by Lord Justice Leveson is not statutory underpinning [...] but a wholesale reinvigoration of the notion that duty comes before profit.  While the duty of the professions is to serve their clients, the media’s duty is to serve the public.  The two things are one and the same."
