Complainant Name:
Mr Dan Zerdin

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Evening Standard

Complaint:

Mr Dan Zerdin of London complained that the newspaper had added a sentence to a letter he had submitted so that, when it was published, it made reference to an issue he had not actually raised in his correspondence.

Resolution:

The newspaper admitted that the complainant’s letter had been misinterpreted and, therefore, had been incorrectly précised prior to publication. It apologised for the misunderstanding. The letters’ editor was made aware of the need to be even more careful to avoid such misunderstandings in the future.

Report: 76
