PCC to regulate newspaper audio and video

[Keyword: , ]. Journalism.co.uk reports on the move by the PCC to extend its regulation to cover newspaper audio and video, with chairman Sir Christopher Meyer quoted as saying: “We have now persuaded the newspaper and magazine industry of the United Kingdom to agree also the principle of our regulating moving pictures and sound on newspaper’s websites […] we are going to make an announcement, I hope, pretty soon in the next few weeks about exactly what that entails – there are some definitions to be sorted out – but it’s a major step forward, and it’s the first time, I think, that newspapers have voluntarily agreed without outside pressure to extend the remit of regulation through the PCC.”
