Our second meeting, ably chaired by Alice Searle, was a success. A packed room at the Friends Meeting House heard Granville Williams from the Campaign for Press and Broadcasting Freedom and Stephen Kingston from the Salford Star discuss issues of media ownership, censorship and bias, truthful reporting, right of reply and alternatives to the mainstream media. This was followed by a lively and informed discussion. Afterwards there was a healthy sale of books on the press and the miners strike. Our thanks to our speakers and everyone who attended and also to those organisations and individuals who sponsored the meeting.
