Complainant Name:
A man

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: East Anglian Daily Times


A man complained to the Press Complaints Commission that an article contained a description of him that was inaccurate and misleading.


The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the publication of the following correction in both the print and online versions of the newspaper:

Freelance journalist: A correction

An article in the EADT of 11 December referred to an unnamed journalist as a ‘foot-in-the-door type of freelance journalist' and suggested he had asked whether our articles about the ITFC Charitable Trust had been "penned by a PR team working for the trust". We would like to make clear that we accept that the journalist in question is not a "foot-in-the-door type" and is not critical of our coverage of the Trust's work. We are happy to correct this.
