Draft legislation has been put forward in Scotland,1 where reporter/directing editor Tristan Stewart-Robertson is currently based, for statutory regulation of the media, which would potentially include social media posts on almost any subject.
Tomorrow made its position clear in December on this subject and it will continue to act as a news site subject to our core principles, not to politicians or their appointees. Please see our previous post for more details.
NOTE: This legislation did not progress beyond draft stage.
