British Newspapers Agree to Regulator

LONDON — The editors of Britain’s principal national newspapers met Wednesday under pressure from Prime Minister David Cameron
and agreed to the establishment of an independent newspaper regulator
with far greater powers than those available to the existing watchdog.
But the editors, meeting over breakfast at a London restaurant, steered a
careful course, embracing most but not all of the measures recommended
in a report last week by a high-ranking judge, Lord Justice Sir Brian Leveson.
