The Sun is forced to print a front-page apology to Jeremy Corbyn

Post by Irn Bru on Tue Dec 27, 2016 1:52 am

On 15 September, The Sun ran a front-page story screaming: “Labour hypocrite: Leftie who hates the Royals WILL kiss Queen’s hand to grab £6.2m”. It was illustrated with a picture of Jeremy Corbyn wearing a jester's hat.

Here it is in all its glory:

No wonder Corbyn isn't doing so well in polls whan we have the rabid RW media printing fake news like this and it's digested by those who who are as equally rabid.

Shame on Murdoch and his cronies.

But will that prevent 'MURDOCH' from pulling this ass-swipe ever again?  Wouldn't it have had a better impact had they been 'FINED' ...hit that bottom line for defamation of character and a large sum of money, would have caused at least a 'THOUGHT BUBBLE' for the editors to pounder/pregnant pause before ever doing this again?


Inside, it reads:

“Ipso’s complaints committee found that it was significantly misleading to claim that Labour’s access to the £6.2m depended on whether Mr Corbyn was a member of the privy council.
“The two were not formally connected and the article did not make clear how a majority of the funding was in fact allocated. The committee upheld the complaint.”

The Sun prints so much propaganda and crap they should just run a continual apology page and add to it every day!
