Part 1 of the series “The Murdoch Affair and the Leveson Inquiry: A Critical Assessment” presented by Media@McGill
Earlier this year, Peter Oborne was summoned as a witness before Lord Justice Leveson in a public inquiry investigating the ethics and practices of the British press, following the phone-hacking allegations that began with the now-defunct News of the World tabloid. With twenty-years’ experience as a political journalist, Oborne observed that he “saw again and again journalists and politicians entering a conspiracy against the readers.”
