Point scoring

The Oxford Media Convention, set up by the IPPR, has firmed up its 2015 agenda - and it's slightly underwhelming. Mark Thompson, formerly of the BBC, now with the New York Times, has turned down their kind invitation to present a keynote speech - instead we get Stephen "Dapper" Dunbar-Johnson, President of the International New York Times, formerly FT ad sales man, based in Paris.

The event opens with Ed Vaizey, of the Department of Culture, Media and Sport. There's no indication he'll be staying for the afternoon panel discussion, "What is the point of the DCMS ?".
