Complainant Name:
Bryan Ferry

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mirror

Complaint:

Bryan Ferry complained, through Lee & Thompson solicitors of London, that an article was inaccurate in stating that he held positive views about the Nazis.

Resolution:

The matter was resolved when the newspaper published the following correction and apology:

BRYAN FERRY - AN APOLOGY

On 16 April we reported on an interview given by Bryan Ferry to a German newspaper. Our article was headed "The Nazis were so amazing", and claimed that Mr Ferry had been "singing the praises of the Nazis". We now accept this was not true. In fact, Mr Ferry had spoken only of his admiration from an artistic point of view for some aspects of German art, architecture and presentation which were associated with the Nazi regime. He made no mention of the Nazi regime nor did he use the word "Nazi". We accept that Mr Ferry abhors the Nazi regime and all it stood for. We apologise to Mr Ferry for the offence caused by our report and are happy to set the record straight.

Report: 75
