About IPSO Watch


Despite being shamed by the Leveson Inquiry, the top newspaper companies refuse to provide fair redress for ordinary people of the kind Lord Leveson recommended and Parliament endorsed. Instead they set up another secretive “self-regulator” called IPSO and are making false claims about its independence and effectiveness. That’s where IPSO Watch comes in.

IPSO Watch – with your help – monitors what IPSO is up to and tells the public. It keeps count of breaches of the code of conduct, identifies the chief offenders – which IPSO does not do – and highlights the feeble ‘remedies’ that press bosses think are sufficient. In this way we can prevent another propaganda whitewash of the kind that covered up the disgraceful failings of the Press Complaints Commission for decades.

So if you have had dealings with IPSO, or with the complaints department of any news publisher, please let us know. Tell us about your experience, whatever it was. We promise to respect your privacy and confidentiality.

IPSO Watch partners

We can’t suggest that you complain to IPSO because we think they’ll try to brush you off with a quick fix. But if you do decide to take your complaint forward, you might want to seek advice or support from one of our partners.
