"Media Lawyer is an indispensable service for journalists and practitioners alike. It is the only way to keep up with the constant stream of cases, legislation and regulatory decision affecting the print and broadcast media. The range and accuracy of the coverage is astonishing and a practical illustration of the application of the highest standards of responsible journalism."
