Cameron: Pols, Press ‘Too Close’

British Prime Minister David Cameron said the relationship between
 politicians and the press has “gone wrong” and that they have become
 “too close.” In his testimony on Thursday before the Leveson Inquiry—the Parliamentary committee investigating media ethics in the wake of
 the hacking scandal at News Corp.—Cameron said he doesn't “believe the
 regulatory system works” and said that he’s “not trying to blame 
the whole thing on New Labour, but I think it’s been a developing 
story.” Cameron said he never “traded a policy” to receive
 favorable coverage.
