Readers don't want a 'state-sponsored Ministry of Truth'

The editors of newspapers in the News International stable have released a series of videos explaining their vision of a press regulator independent of the government.

The editor of the Sun is quoted on the News International website saying:

Sun readers expect journalists to behave responsibly, but don’t want them censored by a state-sponsored Ministry of Truth. This constructive proposal would create a tough but independent regulator supported by the vast majority of the industry – a workable solution which should command public confidence.

– Dominic Mohan, Editor of The Sun
