Hence, although it tends to be media ownership and control regulation which attracts attention and which is the focus of reform, a proper assessment of such reform can be made only if one considers that this measure is part of a network of regulatory measures which are interdependent. The second assumption relates to the policy which informs pluralism. This will be explored in Chapter Two, but, briefly, it will be asserted that much of the policy informing pluralism regulation, although making reference to the importance of media’s role in the democratic process, has been skewed by a futile focus on the different regulatory treatment of the press and broadcasting, with the result that it is this which is influencing reform debate rather than a proper focus on the place of media in a democracy.
