BBC’s Ward article amended

h/t @Lsorang

Just over two weeks ago we reported here on the partial upholding by the BBC Trust of a complaint made with regard to the wording of one of the BBC’s articles concerning the offensive remarks made by David Ward MP back in January.

At the time we noted:

“Despite the complaint made by @Lsorang having been partially upheld by the BBC Trust, sadly, at the time of writing, no amendment has been made to the still available online article to reflect that fact.”

Well, better late than never – as they say. We are pleased to be able to report that the headline of the article concerned (which previously read “David Ward MP ‘sorry’ over Israel criticism”) now reads as follows:

Ward after correction

The article now has the following footnote which includes a link to the Trust decision:
