In my piece on Sunday, I made the following comment –
“Shortly afterwards came the ‘hacking scandal’ with Andy Coulson, Rebekah Brooks and many Sun journalists sitting in the dock and some eventually spending time at Her Majesty’s pleasure. There was also an outcry from the usual suspects – BBC, Telegraph, DMGT, Guardian, Trinity Mirror et all – all complaining that there would be too much media power in one set of hands. MP Tom Watson was incandescent with rage at the prospect of Rupert Murdoch building an even more influential empire.”
Some of the content was untrue. I inadvertently did “The Sun” a disservice. No one was convicted or behaved inappropriately during the hacking scandal. It was a slip of the keyboard – It should have read News of the World.
I apologise unreservedly. I am a huge fan of “The Sun” – hence added embarrassment!
