David Cameron: Corrupt or Does He think We are All Stupid?

No surprise there, then.
Lord Leveson spends several million quid on an inquiry, produces a report with clear recommendations and David Cameron rejects it. Could this be because he has always been in the pocket of Rupert Murdoch and was always going to reject statutory oversight of the muck-raking press, or does he think we're all stupid? It is quite obvious that the press is not fit to regulate itself, and neither are they all that concerned with accuracy, justice or consistency. Individual journalists might be, but their editors/publishers are not. The inquiry has shown that corruption and prejudice is rife; in any other context there would be statutory controls. But not, apparently, when there is the possibility that the perpetrator might be able to help a politician's chances of getting elected.
