The campaign against any form of statutory involvement in press regulation continued in this morning's national newspapers. The anti-Leveson chorus can be seen in news stories, commentaries and leading articles.
The central target is the Hacked Off campaign, though there is plenty of pressure applied to the Labour party too in order to head off the possibility of legislation.
In The Sun, for example, a page lead headlined "Hacked off hijack" reports that many of the signatures on the public petition launched by the Hacked Off campaign are fake, including Donald Duck, Mickey Mouse, Superman and Joe Bloggs.
(It would be scandalous to suggest that Sun reporters have been busy pretending to be Mickey M, so please put that thought out of your mind).
Two pages further on, the paper's associate editor, Trevor Kavanagh, warns hacking victims that they risk looking like avengers by pushing for the full implementation of Leveson's proposals. »
