The first two media public interest considerations largely replicate the substantive provisions of the old special newspaper regime. They are:
(1) the need for: (a) accurate presentation of news; and (b) free expression of opinion, in newspapers1; and
(2) the need for, to the extent that it is reasonable and practicable, a sufficient plurality of views in newspapers in each market for newspapers in the United Kingdom or a part of the United Kingdom2.
The government has stated the expectation that these newspaper public interest considerations will be interpreted in line with decisions taken under the Fair Trading Act 1973
