Summary: As we noted in our June column, ‘Press reporting on family courts’ [2018] Fam Law 750, there seems little prospect of imminent change to the current framework for the regulation of the mainstream media. Although a new Press Recognition Panel (PRP) has been set up to approve ‘Leveson compliant’ independent regulators, the mainstream press set about creating their own new organisation to replace the old Press Complaints Commission: the Independent Press Standards Organisation (IPSO).
