I thought you might be interested to see what happens in the UK when a newspaper publishes something which is factually-challenged and is then challenged on the facts.
It seems that The Daily Telegraph (a historically fine newspaper, and the only one I was allowed to read as a child, after a member of the staff had ironed it, of course), has fallen on hard times, and only last week published a cover story on Melania Trump in its Saturday magazine. Many of the “facts” alleged in the article were false.
The Telegraph has already “apologised “unreservedly” to Melania Trump and agreed to pay her “substantial damages””
Here is the full text of the Telegraph apology.
