Economist Say No

20130322-084434.jpg Another day, another publication says no to Hacked Off. The Economist’s leader calls the Royal Charter “A Rotten Deal”. They are bang on the money:

“Society has a choice. If it values freedom from intrusion more than freedom of expression, it needs state regulation. If it regards the Press as so important that freedom of expression must be protected at all costs, then it must avoid state regulation like the plague. We believe society gains more from a free Press than it loses from the tabloids’ occasional abuse of defenceless people … now a late-night deal between politicians could give politicians power over it. Fortunately, their proposal is such a mess that it looks as though it may fall apart.”

Hear, hear…
