InPublishing: How the press got back its mojo

I've written an article for InPublishing about some of the brilliant public interest stories published by the press this summer: How the press got back its mojo - and its regulation in first.

Among the stories I've highlighted are the victory by the Sunday Times over crime boss David Hunt (top); the Guardian's revelations that undercover police tried to smear the family of murdered teenager Stephen Lawrence; politicians caught in lobbying scandal; The Times on grooming gangs; the Guardian vindicated over the Ian Tomlinson case; the Independent on the 'other' hacking scandal; the Guardian scooping the US press on the NSA mass surveillance spying story; the naming of health officials involved in a cover-up; and the culmination of the Liverpool Echo's campaign on behalf of the families of the Hillsborough victims.
