    Newspapers and magazines face £1m fines under new regulator

    An Independent Press Standards Organisation would include a standards and compliance arm with investigative powers and an arbitration service to offer an alternative to the courts. The regulator could force editors to publish corrections and adjudications "whether they like it or not", while journalists would be able to call a whistleblowers' hotline to raise concerns. The proposals are supported by the Newspaper Society, which represents regional and local newspapers, and the Newspaper Publishers Association, which represents national newspapers including Telegraph Media Group, the publisher of The Daily Telegraph. They are also supported by the Scottish Newspaper society and PPA, which represents magazine publishers.
