Guardian – Sun front-page story on ‘terror target’ Sir Alan Sugar under investigation: The Press Complaints Commission is investigating a front-page story in the Sun newspaper that claimed Islamic extremists were targeting The Apprentice star Sir Alan Sugar. The PCC has launched an investigation and will consider whether Abuislam is Jenvey. The regulator has contacted the Sun and is awaiting the paper’s response. It is understood that the Sun story originated from a news agency. The Sun declined to comment on why it had removed the story from its website.
“It is understood that the Sun story originated from a news agency” is an interesting little fig leaf, isn’t it?
