Complainant Name:
Ms Jenna Delich

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Jewish Chronicle

Complaint:

Ms Jenna Delich, a lecturer at The Sheffield College, complained that an article reporting that she had been suspended from participation in an email forum for union members after posting a link to David Duke’s website contained inaccuracies. The complainant said that she had not known who David Duke – the former Ku Klux Klan wizard – was when she posted the link; she had intended users to read an article by an individual called Joe Quinn about the humanitarian crisis in Gaza. Once details of Mr Duke’s identity had been explained to her, she had apologised to forum members for posting a link to his site.

Resolution:

The newspaper offered to publish an online clarification reiterating that the complainant had posted the link to David Duke’s site inadvertently; the article had included her position that she had been unaware of Mr Duke’s identity when she had posted the link. However, the complainant remained concerned that the headline – and an accompanying illustration – had referred to the KKK. The complaint was resolved by the publication of a statement on the Commission’s website detailing the complainant’s position.

Report: 79
