Don Foster: Media plurality rules aren’t good enough

"Jeremy Hunt has assiduously followed the rules on media plurality laid down by the last Government. But those rules aren't good enough and are failing to inspire public confidence.

"The last Labour Government originally didn't even want general media plurality rules. Our current, watered down protections were only introduced after a long battle in the House of Lords.

"We need an independent commission to look at plurality and come up with protections that can be trusted."
