Watchdog at work

Pictured: The CIoJ’s Campbell Thomas with Sir Alan Moses, Chairman of the Independent Press Standards Organisation (IPSO), the new press watchdog, at the start of an IPSO meeting in Scotland. (The meeting was boycotted by Hacked Off.) Campbell had 15 minutes with Sir Alan during which he highlighted the Institute’s view that the IPSO Board needs wider representation from grass-roots journalists, not just senior editors and proprietors. Afterwards, Sir Alan asked to see the CIoJ’s Code of Conduct which he said he would study with interest.
