The Government has announced the creation of a government regulator overseeing all forms of media, including electronic media. The Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) will publish its white paper, which is set to chart the "third broadcasting revolution", and lay out its plans for the multimedia regulator, covering everything from television to email, a DCMS spokeswoman confirmed. Furthermore, the new regulator, which will replace current regulators such as the Independent Television Commission and the Broadcasting Standards Council, will also have the power to investigate all broadcasting and telecommunications companies, the DCMS spokeswoman said. Culture Secretary Chris Smith introduced the white paper at the House of Commons at 3:30pm on Tuesday.
