*This campaign now looks to have the highest social reach of UK-based campaigns to date.
Murdoch's company has been found guilty: now he must do what Lord Justice Leveson told him. That’s the only way to protect the British public from press abuse in the future.
For years the Murdoch press clung to the story that one rogue reporter was responsible for phone hacking. We now know this was a lie. Far from being an isolated incident involving a few ‘bad apples’, the trial has shown that the entire orchard was rotten.
The trial also shone a light on the appalling, systemic newsroom culture of bullying, lies, intimidation and intrusion that has devastated the lives of many people. From royalty and Cabinet ministers to victims of crime and bereaved families, nobody was safe.
Has Rupert Murdoch done what is necessary to ensure it won’t happen again? No he hasn’t. Instead he has joined with the other press groups to create IPSO – another sham regulator, like the PCC, designed to block the changes demanded by the Leveson Inquiry, backed by all parties in Parliament, needed by victims of hacking and supported by the public at large.
Unbelievably in response to the Coulson guilty verdict and the guilty pleas of five other senior employees, News UK (News International's hasty re-brand) has now stated that their "solution" is IPSO, a re-run of the PCC
It is time for Rupert Murdoch and all newspapers to show the British public they are doing the right thing. They must show some humility and accept full Leveson-style independent scrutiny of their regulatory system.
Campaigning for a free and accountable press.
