Leveson and the cartoonists

November 30, 2012 in Comment, General, News

Cartooning has long been associated with the print industry* so it is only natural that the artists have been interested in the Leveson Inquiry report into the Culture, Media and Ethics of the Press. It was delivered yesterday, as Dave Brown of The Independent notes.

Peter Brookes in The Times takes a tangential look at the weaknesses in the job Lord Justice Leveson was asked to do by the Prime Minister, or, in political speak the missing bits of the terms of reference.

And why was he asked to make this report? It was something about the power of black and white, thinks Matthew Buck in Tribune.

The coalition Government is already falling out about what the report has recommended, as captured by Andy Davey in The Sun.

The rows resulting from the Leveson report are unlikely to be over by this Christmas, or next.

  1. ALL the featured drawings were good, but with something like Leveson, they should be, innit ? I’m waiting eagerly for our politicos to react when the fragrant Ms Brooks and Laugh-a-Minute Coulson are sworn in to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. How the hell would they know ?
