Whose Revolution?
With the advent of the digital age and convergence of communications
technologies the government plans a massive shake-up in how electronic and
print media are to be regulated in the 21st century.
If proposals contained in the government's communications white paper reach
the statute books as they stand they could clear the field for a take-over
frenzy by the media superpowers. Strategies must be hammered out to
safeguard diversity, accountability and the public service ethos, stop the
fall in quality programmes and defend the space for local news and minority
At this major conference called by the Campaign for Press and Broadcasting
Freedom, Culture Minister Chris Smith has been invited present and debate
the white paper with representatives from broadcasting, press, new media,
media education, trade unions, the arts and community campaigns.
