Times Receives Complaints Over Editor's Article; PCC May Review the Case

Times of London editor Giles Coren is in hot water over a piece he wrote about Poles and Polish immigration to the UK. The paper has received complaints, including one from the Polish Ambassador; apparently the piece is considered insufficiently sensitive to Poland and Polish sensibilities. Mr. Coren used the word "Polack" in the article. Mr. Coren is noted for his rather direct way with words. According to this Guardian article, the Press Complaints Commission may launch an investigation, since he may have breached the editors' code of practice.
