Three UK news outlets published corrections or clarifications after Gordon Brown complained to the UK Press Complaints Commission, according to resolution reports on the UK body’s website.
The UK Telegraph ran clarifications on its Sept. 28 article “Brown’s UN briefing cancelled after only one reporter turns up.” The clarification noted that despite the Telegraph‘s characterization that Brown was “handsomely” paid, “money from Mr Brown’s speeches goes directly to charity or to the funding of his and his wife’s charitable and public service work.”
