Why Britain Had to Act on Press Abuses

Professor Brian Cathcart | Posted 11.06.2013 | UK Politics
Professor Brian Cathcart

This is not a story that can be understood from headlines alone, partly because in Britain the headlines have so often wildly distorted the truth. Despite what you may have read, there is no threat by British politicians to interfere with press freedom. There is, however, a powerful consensus for change.

Putting Page 3 in Its Place: Let's Keep Top Shelf Material on the Top Shelf

It's wrong that the dominant image of a woman in The Sun is consistently one of a young, bare-breasted model posing in a thong because it sends a powerful message about a woman's position in society: that her primary role is to be sexually attractive to men.

Oh Hello Mr Mohan

No More Page 3 supporters do not look down their nose at the Page 3 girls at all, but what about the newspaper in which their pictures are showcased? How much are these women paid for their work in comparison to the profit made?

Is the Future of the Fourth Estate Hidden Behind a Paywall?

Andrew Smith | Posted 29.05.2013 | UK
Andrew Smith

In the digital age newspapers are out of date by the time they are published. This is one of the reasons why publishers are investing more in their wider media strategy, with the Evening Standard recently announcing the forthcoming launch of a television channel. One side effect has been the rise of some very successful online publications, but most blogs are volunteer run and don't have enough resources or attract a broad enough readership to compete with the established media in quality terms.

Proud PC Crew

Working at No More Page 3 HQ we get accused quite regulalrly of being many things. Feminazis, prudes, pseudo-feminists, ugly with crap tits... you get the picture. One that pops up now and then and was indeed levelled (perhaps not directly at us) by Murdoch himself was that we are "too PC".

Ukip: Desperate Superheroes or Deluded Wannabes

Superheroes? Maybe not. Superficially alluring to a small subsection of disenchanted Tory voters? Certainly. Able to push a jittery Tory party to the right, despite having few policies and no MPs? Quite possibly.

Page 3 Is Weird and Embarrassing - Why Keep It?

Call me a cynic, but one reason is fairly obvious; the only place one might find fist thumping pro Page 3 rhetoric is the Sun newspaper itself, or possibly an EDL march.

Leveson's Fatal Contradiction

Sir Christopher Meyer | Posted 04.03.2013 | UK Politics
Sir Christopher Meyer

There is nothing in any of the proposals aired at the inquiry or in Leveson or in the hubbub since that will make regulatory issues any more tractable than they have been for over the last two decades. Heaven knows, the PCC needed more muscle and more independence. But, there is no half-decent system of press regulation in the world that does not begin with the taking of complaints from the public. Yet Leveson rejected the notion that a complaints-driven system could justify calling itself a regulator.
