Lord Hunt would first invite bloggers on current affairs to voluntarily agree to regulation. They would receive a seal-of-approval rating that they would lose if complaints against them were repeately upheld.
This would take place when the commission is itself replaced with a body more independent of newspapers. Details of that transition are expected next year.
In reporting on Hunt's interview with the Exaro website (registration needed), blogger Jon Slattery said there would be a two-tier process to deal with newspaper complaints. An agreed-upon process would be created involving an independent reviewer of complaints at the papers. Complainants dissatisfied with this process would then ask the new body for a review.
