The Independent apologized to readers and a football analyst Jan. 25 for publishing quotes from a “spoof Twitter account.”
The newspaper had “attributed quotes to the ITV football analyst Andy Townsend which suggested that he had made sexist comments on Twitter as part of the Andy Gray/Richard Keys story.”
As StinkyJournalism previously reported, Gray was recently fired from Sky Sports for sexist comments.
