An article by John Oates in The Register reports that the News of the World hacking scandal has prompted an internal investigation at Trinity Mirror to make sure news and information is obtained in an ethical manner. The article reports:

Trinity Mirror Group Plc – owner of the Daily Mirror, Daily Record and The People, is opening an internal investigation into ethics and editorial procedures.

The company, which also owns 160 regional papers, has struggled to move its papers online and has watched its share price drop from 571 pence in 2007 to 43 pence today.

A spokesman for the Mirror Group said: “We can confirm that we’re conducting a review of editorial controls and procedures.”

It will be interesting to see if other media companies follow suit to ensure that their company doesn’t become the next News Corp.
