Christmas strikes at the BBC called off, the crisis over Newsnight, the Leveson inquiry and the backlash in the media. It’s been an interesting year for the mainstream media. Donnacha DeLong speaks to Simon, a union rep at the BBC, and Thais Portilho-Shrimpton, who worked for the Hacked Off campaign during the Leveson inquiry.

Plus, at the end, a little bit of seasonal cheer with the ‘Crappy Christmas Song’.

Listen now:

Never Buy the Sun by Billy Bragg is available for free download on his website.
