Press Complaints Commission Raps British Paper For Attempting To Distract Readers' Attention From Negative PCC Ruling
The Press Complaints Commission, which earlier ruled against the Brighton Argus in a complaint against it lodged by Conservative MP Nicholas Soames, has now again told the paper it has misbehaved. The Argus reported the earlier ruling, but on page 32 of its publication, rather than in a prominent section of the issue. Said the PCC, "The Press Complaints Commission has made clear in a criticism of the Brighton Argus that it will not tolerate newspapers publishing its negative rulings with insufficient prominence."
