Complaint:

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

Resolution:

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.
