(AP) - CALL FOR NEW REGULATOR: A British judge said a new independent media regulator should be established to eliminate a subculture of unethical behavior that infected segments of the country's press.

NO GOVERNMENT ROLE: Lord Justice Brian Leveson insisted politicians and the British government should play no role in regulating the press, which should be done by a new body with much stronger powers than the current Press Complaints Commission.

FEARS FOR FREEDOM: Some editors and lawmakers fear any new body could curtail freedom of the press. Leveson envisions a body composed of members of the public including former journalists and academics- but no serving editors or politicians.
