The panel, chaired by Nik Gowing of BBC World, consisted of Lindsey Hilsum (Channel 4 News), Paul Keetch (Liberal Democrat MP for Hereford) and Vaughan Smith (Frontline Television).
Nik Gowing expressed concern at the apparent "instinct now among those in power to say, 'All of you as journalists, particularly videojournalists, are threatening our power to rule and run the country and mount an operation in the way we see fit.'".
His view was reinforced by Paul Keetch, Shadow Defence Secretary, who said "Politicians want to control our news, be it local, national or international….your job, it seems to me, is to try and frustrate us and actually witness and report the real issues.

 [A-List] UK military: fiscal crisis & pensions scandal   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-19)
Sick troops left with no medical pensions IAN BRUCE, Defence Correspondent The Herald, May 25 2004 THE Ministry of Defence has admitted it has discharged more than 200 sick or injured soldiers without them receiving medical pensions.
Paul Keetch, Liberal Democrat defence spokesman, said the figures, revealed in an answer to a written parliamentary question, show the soldiers left under administrative regulations rather than being declared medically unfit.
The difference in pension and other benefits saves the MoD up to £18,000-a-man per year and is seen by military insiders as a method of cost-cutting at a time when the military budget is under pressure from Iraq war costs and arms' programme over-spending.
