Complainant Name:
Ms Jane McCadden

Clauses Noted: 9

Publication: Sunday Mail


Media House complained on behalf of Ms Jane McCadden that an article reporting that she had been accused of publishing misleading information on her companys website contained a gratuitous reference to her father, a convicted criminal.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper annotated its internal records with a statement making clear that there was no link between the complainants company and her father, and that such a connection should not be made in future coverage unless it was relevant.

Report: 79
