The Observer – How long will it take to get a correction and apology?

I have now added a counter to the front page of the Quackometer to show how many weeks it has been since the Observer has failed to print a proper correction of its glaring errors about MMR and autism and to offer an apology for misleading its readers.

Others have fully documented and made available to all the problems with the article about MMR by Denis Campbell. The Observer web site version of the story has been removed – it looks like it may contain a legal problem. But this story was so bad it needs a full print correction and apology.

  1. So we should keep writing the letters of complaint, then?

    “Dear Sir,

    I seem to have missed your apology for (and correction of) the recent MMR story by Denis Campbell. Please can you indicate when this article will appear on your front page as I would be loath to miss it?”
