Who will guard the guardians?

When I skimmed the Leveson report, my mind turned to Juvenal's iconic question: "Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?"

Independence is essential for a free Press and, if an administration can hold journalism to account, then who is left to hold that administration to account?

The essence of a free Press is the ability to publish what powerful people with stuff to hide do not want exposed. These proposals will end up safeguarding evil.
