Press

FAQ's - Where do You stand on Media Ownership?

We are very fortunate in Sheffield to have an excellent array of local independent online journalists, as well as community radio and TV now. We need to encourage and support these and others to ensure that we have a locally focused free press in the future.

Media barons like Rupert Murdoch have far too much power in our democracy and we need regulation. However, I would like to emphasize that while regulation of media companies when they get to a certain size is important, it is not right for us to enter into a censorship campaign that would choke the press and stifle the free flowing exchange of information.
