Media representation of the News of the World phone hacking scandal and the Leveson inquiry
The News of the World Phone hacking scandal turned the British political-media complex upside down. Newspaper editors, media owners, journalists, private investigators were placed in the spotlight for their malpractice. The scandal resulted in the closure of a newspaper that had existed for 168 years, and led to the setting up of the Leveson inquiry. But most importantly, it stirred up a debate on the role journalism plays and is expected to play in contemporary society. Subjects of this debate include issues of public trust, press freedom, privacy, media ownership and arguments bordering on whether or not the British media need more regulation, if at all.
