Leveson - "clear evidence of misreporting on European issues" « Business for New Europe Blog

For those interested in the European debate, Volume 2, pages 687 and 688 of the Leveson Report make for interesting reading. Lord Justice Leveson said, "there is certainly clear evidence of misreporting on European issues." On a story in the Daily Main reporting an apparent EU ban on plastic bags, he commented that it "was based on a deliberate or careless misinterpretation of EU proposals..." (9.54 below)

On misreporting of EU issues in the press he said, "the cumulative impact can have serious consequences. Mr Blair explained that the misinformation published about Europe by some parts of the press made it difficult for him to adopt particular policies or achieve certain political ends in Europe that he might otherwise have done."
