Brian Cathcart – ‘Is the national press corrupt?’

The British have traditionally thought their country unaffected by high-level corruption, but may have missed something glaringly obvious. Journalist, historian and press reform campaigner, Brian Cathcart, looks at the role of corporate national newspapers in British politics and asks if they perform their democratic function of holding power to account – or corrupt our institutions and damage society.

Brian Cathcart is professor of journalism at Kingston University and was one of the founders of the Hacked Off press reform campaign. Formerly a senior journalist at the Independent papers and the New Statesman, Brian is the author of several books, including The Case of Stephen Lawrence, The Fly in the Cathedral and most recently The News from Waterloo.
