IPSO sides with newspaper’s evidence over reader’s
The Press Complaints Commission was set up in 1991 to ensure that British newspapers and magazines follow the letter and spirit of the Editor’s Code of Practice which deals with ethical issues such as inaccuracy, privacy, misrepresentation and harassment. The PCC was replaced by the Independent Press Standards Organisation (IPSO) in 2014.
Most complaints are resolved directly by editors to the satisfaction of those complaining. ISPO adjudicates formally on the remainder, with all critical adjudications published in full by the publications involved.
We aim to cover all IPSO adjudications on HoldtheFrontPage, and you will find them here.
