Complainant Name:
Mr Richard Morris

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Liverpool Echo

Complaint:

Mr Richard Morris of Heswall complained that a front page banner headline was inaccurate and misleading when it suggested that Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez would discuss the footballer David Villa on the back page. In fact, the article in question did not contain any comments attributed to Mr Benitez.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper which said that the error had occurred as the result of a regrettable miscommunication against a tight deadline and was not a deliberate attempt to mislead reviewed its internal procedures in addition to making a donation to charity as a gesture of goodwill.

Report: 78
