BPPA Refused by Leveson Inquiry
The inquiry which was set up to look into press ethics and working practices following various recent tabloid practices (some of which are now known not to have happened at the hands of the press) took a turn and began attacking the paparazzi and photographers as a whole. The reporting of the inquiry has muddled the distinction of the paparazzi and working press photographers, calling everyone a press or news photographer.
The BPPA made an application to become a core participant to balance out the extremely one sided evidence which was given, but sadly has been rejected from doing this.
How is the Leveson Inquiry going to be balanced or even accurate if it won’t accept the BPPA?
