In August 2012, the House of Lords Select Committee on Communications announced a new Inquiry, ‘Media convergence and its public policy policy impact’, exploring the nature and consequences of digital convergence across the media industries, the public, and public policy.

The Media Standards Trust submission to the Inquiry focuses on the implications of convergence for democracy and the public sphere, concentrating on four significant and related issues:

  • Public access to limitless information and content across multiple platforms
  • Trustworthiness of information and content in news
  • The blurring of boundaries between news, public relations content, and advertorial
  • Access to public interest news and journalism
