But wait: a thought occurs. If bloggers are to be brought under the PCC, surely we should have seats on the PCC board? And, given the fact that our combined readership is somewhat larger than the newspapers’, shouldn’t we actually have a majority of seats on that board? It seems to me that having a majority of bloggers sitting on the PCC board would almost certainly result in a better system of self-regulation than we have at present.
Now that would be fun: apart from anything else, I'd love to see Justin, Unity and Tim Ireland ruling on complaints against The Sun, for instance.
And, even more joyfully, we could see a situation in which the peripatetic Greek, Timmy and myself are called on to rule
You know, this idea is beginning to appeal...
