Leveson After

is Professor Richard Sambrook, Director of Cardiff University for journalism. Again, I'm running into two parts.

Sambrook began his career in the local press in South Wales before joining the BBC, where he became Director of the World News of the World. He believes an opportunity to Leveson British journalism outside his commitment to "a romantic notion of amateurism" to build professionalism ...

Proposals to "professionalise" journalism are often rejected middle class elite who suffer or do not understand the appeal of anarchic belligerent press, tabloid naughty and try to impose their standards on others.

But beyond the need to avoid undue interference, it is difficult to argue that the quality of writing and appropriate culture for 50 years, has yet to dominate a sector as transformed in scale and ambition, and face to the current range of economic and technological challenges.

In fact, the lack of professionalism or professional framework seems likely to have contributed to the current low morale of British newspaper journalism, but success can contain a fully digital future.

A YouGov poll on trust between regular professional journalists invariably show red best newspapers in the background. In March 2003, 14% of respondents trust journalists to feel, against 93% who trusted the doctors, 88% of teachers and 82% of local police departments. Journalists and media assistants killed a little more than 80%, with journalists in mid-market newspapers 36%.

Over the next nine years, there has been a downward trend in confidence in the whole, but in November 2012, the figures were 82% of doctors, 74% of teachers, 69 % of local police departments, broadcasters, 44% of mid-market journalists and 18% red-top journalists only 10%.

This highlights how the British press is not really a company that is recognized by the public. Inconvenient for those seeking reform is the market tabloid red-top - at least trust - what makes the most money. The broadsheets luxury - the largest - tend to lose money

But journalists themselves are increasingly concerned. Preliminary results of a study sponsored by the National Council for the Training of Journalists with work show significant changes in the attitudes of journalists working in comparison with a similar survey 10 years ago.

This shows that although the Spanish journalists are highly qualified (88% have a bachelor's degree or higher compared to 38% of the labor force in the United Kingdom as a whole) at least two-thirds ( 63%) have a journalism degree.


skills are considered more important to find a job as a journalist (80% against 72% ten years ago) and more relevant to his journalistic work (89% against 82% in 2002).

Although most learning is done over the past 12 months (71%), most of which was informal, self-paced, more likely to be paid by such person or paid by employers free.

All respondents believe that changes in the past 10 years have led to job satisfaction, the feeling of unskilled labor (40%) and produce quality work (38%). Only half recommend to a young person become a journalist - 48% would not

It is a conviction by those currently working in newsrooms in Britain. Trust in journalists is at least 10 years, and the journalists themselves are more pessimistic about the profession they were a decade ago.

The increasing precariousness of journalism - use fewer staff and increased use of freelancers -. It is also infringe the rules of the "business" so that physicians recognize

An independent study by the NCTJ among editors of almost all media groups revealed a common concern that disclosures Leveson had "dented his own personal safety and that of their profession as a whole . "

a "great danger" chattering class "'

others feared the report would lead to the suppression of good journalism and important stories that are not reported. As one respondent said: "There is a great danger that the chattering classes seek to impose their own values ??in the process and they will try to eliminate what he considered" sticky ", calling it immoral.

This results in the refusal to tolerate any legal basis for regulating the pressure, but extends beyond the refusal to consider seriously a firm commitment to the qualifications, standards, public accountability or training.
