The press watchdog has rapped a weekly newspaper after it described a man convicted of harassment as a “stalker”. The Independent Press Standards Organisation has upheld a complaint against the South Wales Guardian by Philip Raeburn, who was found guilty of harassment without violence. After an investigation, IPSO ruled that the use of the term “stalker” was inaccurate because stalking is defined as a separate offence in law. IPSO found the difference between stalking and harassment to be meaningful given that the former term was itself defined as a separate offence in law. IPSO considered that the appropriate remedy was the publication of a further correction, rather than an upheld adjudication.23 days ago HoldtheFrontPage
