PA’s bold ‘public service reporting’ initiative
Roy Greenslade discusses the proposal by the Press Association to provide ‘free’ public service reporting of courts and councils. This is going to take the strain from quite a few local papers that are really struggling at the moment and should be applauded in terms of a democratic def cit. Its interesting that Roy reports that PA’s proposal is to provide copy free of charge to ‘relevant local media outlets’ I wonder if this will include hyperlocal UGC iniatitves or will it only include the corporates, it would be a shame if it did. I will try and out.
