Miliband Apology

October 4, 2013 by  

Miliband Apology, The Mail on Sunday has “unreservedly” apologised “for a reporter intruding into a private memorial service” for Labour leader Ed Miliband’s uncle.

Editor Geordie Greig’s apology came after Mr Miliband wrote to the paper’s owner asking him to “reflect on the culture of your newspapers”.

Mr Miliband said relatives at the memorial event had been asked for views on “the Daily Mail’s description of my father as someone who ‘hated Britain'”.

Two journalists have been suspended.

In his statement Mr Greig said the reporter had been sent without his knowledge and an investigation was being held into “a decision which was wrong”.

He said he had expressed to Mr Miliband his “regret that such a terrible lapse of judgement” had happened, adding: “It is completely contrary to the values and editorial standards of The Mail on Sunday.”

Lord Rothermere, owner of both the Daily Mail and Mail on Sunday, has apologised to the Labour leader over the reporters’ actions.

‘Common decency’
Mr Miliband has been involved in a row with the Daily Mail since it printed a profile of his late father, Marxist academic Ralph Miliband, last Friday, headlined “The man who hated Britain”.
