LONDON (AP) — Britain's prime minister has warned newspaper editors they must act quickly to set up an independent press regulator in the wake of a media ethics scandal.
David Cameron spoke days after a report he commissioned on press wrongdoing proposed that the press should be regulated by an independent body enshrined in law.
Cameron has expressed misgivings about that and on Tuesday participated in a summit to hear proposals for a new system not backed by law.
He told the BBC that he'd said there that "the clock is ticking" for the industry to implement changes outlined in the report from Lord Justice Brian Leveson.
The report made recommendations to root out a sub-culture of unethical behavior that led to Britain's phone-hacking scandal.
