PCC to publish all reports

The Press Complaints Commission will publish reports on all cases that raise a breach of the editors’ code when it relaunches its website next year.

The press watchdog is making the move as part of its response to 75 recommendations made by an independent review published last July.

“These will include upheld complaints, resolved complaints, and all cases where the newspaper has offered sufficient remedial action. This latter category has not previously been published by the Commission,” it said.
Apologies will also feature prominently on the new website. (Source: journalism.co.uk)

Charlie Beckett, director of POLIS at the London School of Economics, reacts to news that the UK government forced the Guardian into destroying hard drives that contained information leaked by Edward Snowden.
