As the Leveson Inquiry continues, the former labour Prime Minister Tony Blair is in court to give evidence about the relationship between the press and politicians. He told the media ethics hearing that close interaction between politicians and newspapers was inevitable. He was also called a war criminal by a yelling protestor who had broken into the court.
As Tony Blair was sworn into court. Robert Jay QC then alluded to the power that media groups have over politicians. To which Tony Blair replied that he was uncomfortable with the unhealthy relationship between politicians and press.
And it seems Tony Blair wasn't the only person who was uncomfortable about the proceedings, as a protester gained access to the court and shouted that Tony Blair was a war criminal before being bundled from the room.
Robert Jay then asked Tony Blair if the public thought the media were too powerful.
