Welsh Assembly journalism idea 'to engage with public'

Journalists should be employed by the National Assembly for Wales in response to cuts in coverage by conventional media, according to a report.

A taskforce chaired by ex-Welsh Government minister Prof Leighton Andrews has made the recommendation.

It examined ways of improving the assembly's digital news and information and increasing public awareness.

It suggests employing a small team of journalists along with "an experienced, impartial editor".

Prof Andrews said it was not about a Pravda-style operation but engaging with the public better.
