Description

The National Union of Journalists has told the Leveson Inquiry into phone hacking that journalists are being bullied by newspaper managements and put under huge pressure to deliver the story at all costs. Michelle Stanistreet, NUJ General Secretary, gave evidence from testimony compiled from personal interviews with journalists that reveals a shocking catalogue of bullying and abuse in the newspaper industry. Much of the evidence had to be given anonymously because the journalists involved fear for their jobs and livelihoods if their identity is made public.
