Complainant Name:
Jennie Kermode

Clauses Noted: 1, 12

Publication: Daily Mail

Complaint:

Jennie Kermode complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had implied that the case of Patricia Dye, a woman who admitted dressing as a man for purposes of deception and sexual access, was equivalent to that of Brandon Teena, a transgender man who was a victim of crime. As a result, the complainant said the coverage was inaccurate and misleading.

Resolution:

While the newspaper did not accept that it had breached the Editors' Code, the complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated an appropriate amendment to the online article.
