Sarah Palin Zoe Margolis’s Independent ‘Hooker’ In Corrections

ZOE Margolis was labelled a prostitute by the Independent. She isn’t She wasn’t.The Independent regrets the error. After the apology, Anorak presents a gallery of our pick of the newspaper correction. Do look at them all. It makes you wonder how journalism works:

On 7 March 2010, we published an article by Zoe Margolis. In part of the first edition of the newspaper and online, this article carried the headline, “I was a hooker who became an agony aunt”.

This was written by the newspaper not Ms Margolis. We accept that Ms Margolis is not and never has been “a hooker” or otherwise involved in the sex industry.

The wording of the headline was a mistake and seriously defamatory of Ms Margolis. We offer our sincere apologies to Ms Margolis for the damage to her reputation and the distress and embarrassment which she has suffered.

Still, at least she’s not Sarah Palin…
