A farewell to the BBC
Leveson: Press and politicians still seek solution
For months, the Leveson Inquiry dominated the news, as a succession of high-profile witnesses gave evidence - actors Hugh Grant and Sienna Miller, singer Charlotte Church; the parents of Milly Dowler and Madeleine McCann; editors, proprietors, police chiefs, politicians.
The climax came at the end of November, when Lord Justice Leveson published his 2,000-page report in the heart of Westminster. A few days later Prime Minister David Cameron summoned national newspaper editors to Downing Street, demanding urgent action.
Leveson Report: Analysis
For editors, publishers and - not least - newspaper proprietors, this is a damning report.
Lord Justice Leveson not only recommends statutory 'underpinning' for a new independent system of press regulation - rejecting the industry's own proposal for a new body as "not going nearly far enough" to demonstrate independence from publishers.
Hall has hands full with BBC job
Extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures - and for the BBC these are extraordinary times.
That is why BBC Trust chairman Lord Patten approached Tony Hall to be the new BBC director general without going through the normal recruitment process, and why Lord Hall of Birkenhead - to give him his proper title - accepted the offer to return to the corporation, even though he'd not applied for the job earlier in the year.
BBC Newsnight: Entwistle says 'wrong' to air film
After weeks under fire for not broadcasting Newsnight's report of child abuse allegations against Jimmy Savile, the BBC has now had to apologise for a child abuse investigation it did broadcast.
This second episode is even more damaging than the first.
Press give verdict on Entwistle evidence
The director general of the BBC, George Entwistle, has admitted to MPs that the reputation of the BBC has been called into question by the scandal over the revelations that Jimmy Savile sexually abused young girls.
When George Entwistle first volunteered to answer questions from the Culture Media & Sport committee about the Jimmy Savile scandal, it seemed a good idea.
Savile allegations 'will not go away'
The BBC director general has apologised to the alleged victims of Sir Jimmy Savile and promised a "comprehensive investigation" once the police have completed their own inquiries.
But if George Entwistle hoped this would kick the issue into the long grass - as some have suggested - he may be out of luck.
The media and the Olympic Games
The huge crowds packing the streets for the Olympic and Paralympic parade were the final endorsement - if any were needed - of the triumph of London 2012.
"Thanks a million" trumpeted both the Daily Mail and Daily Mirror, reflecting estimates of the size of the crowd.
How is Paralympics seen by media?
The first weekend of the Paralympics is under way. But has it captured the public gaze in the same way as its sibling the Olympic Games?
"Thanks for the warm-up" proclaimed Channel 4 in a much-applauded advertising campaign, the day the Olympics ended. Its ads positioned Paralympic competitors as "superhumans", suggesting the achievements to come would be even more inspiring than those at the earlier Games.
What the press coverage of Prince Harry tells us
The UK press has declined to print pictures of Prince Harry naked in a Las Vegas hotel room, after St James's Palace contacted the Press Complaints Commission. What does this say about British media in the midst of the Leveson Inquiry?
British papers may not have printed the pictures of Prince Harry, but they have reported the furore in full detail - and told readers where they can find the photos, which first surfaced on the TMZ entertainment website in the US.
