Associated Press

NO CLUES: Britain's prime minister, David Cameron, offered no clues on whether he will support new, more stringent regulation of the country's press after getting an early copy of a report reviewing the media.

BACKGROUND: The review, which will be publicly released Thursday, follows a yearlong inquiry into the country's unruly tabloids after a phone-hacking scandal. The scandal rocked Britain's establishment with evidence of media misdeeds, police corruption and too-cozy links between the press and politicians.

NEW RULES?: The essential issue swirling around the report is whether it could prompt the government to pass new laws to curb the press.
