Media reform: the debates elsewhere

As we said on Monday, Lib Dem Voice over the next few weeks is taking part in a cross-blog debate on some of the most pressing issues regarding the UK media.

Earlier this week here on The Voice Mark took a look at what the Liberal Democrats have historically said on the topic and why the flaws in Ed Miliband’s policy are no cause for rejoicing.

Elsewhere on the blogosphere, David Elstein looked at those Ed Miliband policies in detail and Dan Hind put the case for ensuring greater plurality of ownership.

Next week we will be looking at the question “How can we better protect individual privacy while preventing powerful corporate, individual or state interests from inhibiting investigative journalism?”. If you would like to contribute to the debate on that with a guest post, please get in touch with your submission.
