The Truth About IPSO

IPSO is the ‘Independent Press Standards Organisation’ – 
the press regulator backed by the Murdoch papers, the Mail, 
the Mirror, the Telegraph and the Express.

• They claim it’s new.
• They claim it’s far better than the discredited Press Complaints Commission (PCC).
• They claim it delivers what the Leveson Inquiry recommended.
• They claim that it’s ‘the toughest press regulator in the world’.


IPSO is biased and unfair, just like the PCC. And just like the PCC it will allow the big newspapers to bully, lie and intrude with impunity, so ordinary people will suffer.

Don’t get fooled again. Learn the truth about IPSO, and its former incarnation, the PCC – and how it is the same organisation, pulling the wool over everyone’s eyes again.

Learn how the newspaper bosses are ignoring Leveson, Parliament and the wishes of the British people – and how they have set up a ‘self-regulator’ that enables them to carry on cheating the public.  Download our handy guide – IPSO Exposed! – print it, share it with your family and friends.
