Fascinating post by Hugh Tomlinson QC on journalist’s privilege. This is not only a question of whether citizen journalists should access source protection and public interest defences if they break the law in the pursuit of public interest news. The issue is also at the heart of the Leveson Inquiry – how best to regulate the activities of news-gatherers at a time when they push the boundaries of propriety and traditional platform-based regulation is breaking down.
