Yet another 'policy' announcement from the Conservative Party and one which, it seems, does nothing to 'paper over' the problems with journalism today.
What is interesting is that neither the National Union of Journalists (NUJ), nor the Newspaper Society, appear to have registered is that the problem is one they could, working together, easily solve.
Might one suggest that were they both to introduce greater standards in the calibre of staff hired it would address the deficit in both 'quality' and 'journalism' that is so obviously lacking today.
