Leveson Inquiry

Brian Leveson and Robert Jay each gave an overview of the inquiry process thus far into the relationship between the media and politicians, in light of the British phone-hacking scandal.
Prime Minister David Cameron appointed Lord Justice Leveson on July 13, 2011, to investigate the role of the press and police in the phone-hacking scandal surrounding the defunct British newspaper News of the World. The hearings were divided into four modules, or phases: 1) the relationship between the press and the public, and phone-hacking and other potentially illegal acts 2) relationships between the press and police 3) the relationship between press and politicians 4) recommendations for improved policy and regulation.
