Complainant Name:
Mr Chris Arnsby

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail

Complaint:

Mr Chris Arnsby complained about a photograph of a document said to have been handed out to Question Time audience members which had been used to accompany an article about Nick Griffin's appearance on the programme. The complainant said that the image was misleading as it had been edited to ensure that the BNP leader's biography appeared directly below instructions to the audience (which asked them to be "provocative").

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper - which said that the error was not a deliberate attempt to mislead but rather the result of a simple misunderstanding, something which the BBC had accepted - amended the online article to reflect the situation accurately in addition to marking its cuttings for future reference.

Report: 80
