Description
Media ownership and regulation are in the spotlight as never before.

Revelations about the conduct of Murdoch-owned papers have pitched the press into crisis.
The Leveson Inquiry is lifting the lid on the truth behind the headlines and there is now a once in a generation chance for real reform.

On Saturday March 17, politicians, union representatives, journalists, campaigners, commentators and academics will debate how we can reform the media
