Brian Leveson and Robert Jay each gave an overview of the inquiry process thus far into the relationship between the media and politicians, in light of the British phone-hacking scandal.

Prime Minister David Cameron appointed Lord Justice Leveson on July 13, 2011, to investigate the role of the press and police in the phone-hacking scandal surrounding the defunct British newspaper News of the World. The hearings were divided into four modules, or phases: 1) the relationship between the press and the public, and phone-hacking and other potentially illegal acts 2) relationships between the press and police 3) the relationship between press and politicians 4) recommendations for improved policy and regulation. close
