Hacked Off Guardian petition
READERS OF the Freelance who also regularly read the Guardian may wish to consider responding to an appeal by Hacked Off, the campaign for press freedom and accountability, to petition Guardian editor Alan Rusbridger to resist pressure to join IPSO, the press barons' self-regulatory "son of the Press Complaints Commission".
Apparently, the Guardian is coming under pressure to do so. The petition is for your perusal at http://hackinginquiry.org/how-you-can-help/guardian. Naturally, we expect our readers to do some independent background research of their own before deciding on whether or not to support Hacked Off's proposal.
