Daily Mail's Editor Annoyed With Criticism of PCC

Paul Dacre, editor of the Daily Mail, is upset at criticism of the Press Complaints Commission. The PCC, a self-regulatory body, is "an independent self-regulatory body which deals with complaints about
the editorial content of newspapers and magazines (and their websites)." Says Mr. Dacre, "The sadness is that much of this criticism simply misses the point, for it is an ineluctable truth that many provincial newspapers and some nationals are now in a near-terminal economic condition. If our critics spent as much zeal trying to help reverse this tragic situation and work out how good journalism - which is, by its nature, expensive - is going to survive financially in an internet age, then democracy and the public's right to know would be much better served."
