Complainant Name:
Ms Madeleine Morgan

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sunday Telegraph

Complaint:

Ms Madeleine Morgan of Altrincham complained that an article had referred to a Radio 4 poll where Cherie Blair had been voted the person that listeners would most like to see deported, but that the BBC had indicated to her that it had no record of such a poll. The complainant had subsequently contacted the newspaper for an explanation, but had not received a response to her enquiries.

Resolution:

The newspaper explained that the journalist had cited the poll after seeing it referenced in a number of other publications - details of which it provided - including on the BBC's website. The complainant accepted this explanation as a resolution to her complaint.

Report: 79
