The media must inform about suicide, while avoiding excessive details about the method

Reporting on suicide is extremely difficult, but the Vice feature is an example of glamorising suicide - and there wasn't even a news hook

Editor's Letter: Endless wrangling, but we’ve had a Leveson breakthrough

There was no chance of the newspaper groups’ alternative charter gaining wide acceptance if it failed this independence test. This is a major step in the right direction

A statement co-ordinated by the Newspaper Society said that the Government's proposals enjoyed 'no support within the press'

Newspapers set out rival plan for press regulation

The Government has poured cold water on an alternative plan for press regulation, backed by three of the country's largest newspaper groups, which proposed an independent system of self-regulation with the power to administer £1m fines but which would not be backed by statute.

Carine Patry Hoskins and David Sherborne are accused of 'undermining the integrity of the inquiry'

Perception was all at Leveson and it also matters in this legal eagle love story

No one is suggesting that Mr Sherborne and Ms Patry Hoskins behaved with anything other than propriety, but who is to know what happens when the wigs come off?

Leveson’s legal backstop is aimed at a rogue press – not a free press

The national press which emerged from Leveson was part St George, part jackal

Fresh start for press has arrived, says PCC chief

A 75-year-old former judge, Baron Phillips of Worth Matravers, has been put in charge of establishing a new press regulation system, following the long public inquiry conducted by his judicial colleague Lord Justice Leveson.

Paul Dacre heads the Editors’ Code of Practice Committee, reviewing the journalists’ code

Press plans to give readers a new voice in
hope of heading off Leveson proposals

Public invited to make submissions defining what is in its interest as part of new media code

Lord Hunt, chairman of the PCC, is co-ordinating efforts to agree a new press complaints body

Up to 2,000 publications will sign up to tougher regulator

Labour says it will draft Bill that could force Government’s hand on statutory underpinning

Editorial: Only a free press is democratic

Press regulation should be overseen by the courts, not by a state-appointed body

Why should I answer to David Cameron? Leveson said much that was sensible - and much that wasn't

The Editor of Private Eye notes that his magazine was highlighting the foibles and failings of our press and politicians long before the Leveson Inquiry was set up.

Well-judged and well-received: if Leveson is Santa, this is shaping up to be a wonderful Christmas

Our writer, a former Director of the Press Complaints Commission, declares himself happy with Leveson's report

Rebekah Brooks was charged with bribery at Westminster magistrates' court yesterday

It's not all bad news: listening to Leveson yesterday, I realised this is an opportunity for the press
