Alex Gibson

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Daily Telegraph

Complaint:

Alex Gibson complained that the newspaper had inaccurately reported that Britain's Got Talent contestant Susan Boyle had "appeared" in the Simpson's cartoon show.

Resolution:

While the newspaper did not accept that the inaccuracy was significant, the complaint was resolved when it amended the online article to explain that Susan Boyle had, in fact, only been mentioned by Homer Simpson.
