BBC political editor Nick Robinson came to IPPR to talk about the ongoing struggle between politicians and the media. His new book, Live from Downing Street, focuses on the key milestones in the last century, as those with power negotiated with an increasingly ambitious and demanding media sector. Polly Billington, former political journalist and advisor to Ed Miliband joined him on the panel, and Nick Pearce, director of IPPR, chaired the event.
