Nel silenzio dei soloni dell’informazione italiana impegnati a salvarsi il deretano e a dissertare del sesso degli angeli è uscito in UK il lavoro cordinato da Justice Leveson per fare il punto sull’etica dell’iformazione e sui rapporti fra informazione economia, politica, polizia, e privacy. Un lavorone che merita un’analisi attenta.
The Prime Minister announced a two-part inquiry investigating the role of the press and police in the phone-hacking scandal, on 13 July 2011. Lord Justice Leveson was appointed as Chairman of the Inquiry. The first part will examine the culture, practices and ethics of the media. In particular, Lord Justice Leveson will examine the relationship of the press with the public, police and politicians. He is assisted by a panel of six independent assessors with expertise in key issues being considered by the Inquiry.
The Inquiry has been established under the Inquiries Act 2005 and has the power to summon witnesses. It is expected that a range of witnesses, including newspaper reporters, management, proprietors, police officers and politicians of all parties will give evidence under oath and in public.
It will make recommendations on the future of press regulation and governance consistent with maintaining freedom of the press and ensuring the highest ethical and professional standards.
