The Leveson Debate

Tickets: available now on Eventbrite

What are we to make of the Leveson Report? Does the state have a role to play in regulating the press? Join the Soho Skeptics and Conway Hall to debate these issues and more.

On the panel we have:

Nick Cohen – British journalist, author and political commentator. He is a columnist for The Observer, a blogger for The Spectator, and Standpoint magazine. His most recent book You Can’t Read This Book is about free speech and censorship.

Suzanne Moore – Journalist and columnist who has written for The Guardian, The Mail on Sunday, The Independent and others.

Evan Harris – Former Liberal Democrat MP and currently a prominent member of the Hacked Off campaign, which is campaigning for the implementation of the Leveson recommendations.

Natalie Fenton – Co-Director of the Goldsmiths Leverhulme Media Research Centre. She has written a number of books including “New Media, Old Media: Journalism and Democracy in the Digital Age”

The panel will be moderated by New Statesman Deputy Editor Helen Lewis – and there will be an opportunity for audience questions and participation in the second half of the debate.

Doors Open at 6:30pm

Tickets: available now on Eventbrite

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
