23rd July 2015

A journalist, writer and respected academic, Brian is perhaps best known for co-founding the campaign group Hacked Off. He reveals the behind-closed-doors discussions that took place during The Leveson Inquiry, explains why he thinks the new independent press regulator Ipso is toothless and critically biased, and outlines his plans to ensure that Leveson’s recommendations are enacted in full. He also talks through his long career as a journalist, including his time as Deputy Editor of The Independent on Sunday.
