Independent editor's shock and anger at Leveson letter

The editor of the Independent says he is worried that Lord Justice Leveson is "loading a gun" for the newspaper industry, after reading a document warning newspapers of possible criticism in his report into media ethics.

Chris Blackhurst told Steve Hewlett on Radio 4's The Media Show the document was a "diatribe", and spoke of his "shock and anger" at how "one-sided" it was.

The Media Show is broadcast every Wednesday at 16:30 BST on BBC Radio 4.
