Speaker information

Sir Alan Moses, Chairman, IPSO

Following the phone hacking scandal at the News of the World, the Leveson inquiry reviewed the culture and ethics of the British media, and recommended a new, independent body to replace the Press Complaints Commission. The press feared statutory regulation, and have created their own self-regulatory body, the Independent Press Standards Organisation (IPSO). Most British newspapers and magazines have joined IPSO, including the Sun, Times, Telegraph, Mail and Mirror, but the Financial Times and Guardian have stayed outside. Hacked Off, representing the victims of phone hacking, have denounced IPSO as still being dominated by the big newspapers, and not meeting the basic standards of independence and effectiveness recommended by Leveson. Sir Alan Moses, former judge in the Court of Appeal, became the first chair of IPSO in April 2014, and in this talk he will explain IPSO’s mission and respond to its critics.
