Confusing letter-writers with terrorists: the PCC investigates

Earlier this month I blogged about the questions over a story run by The Sun claiming that the likes of Alan Sugar were being targeted by terrorists. There were two problems with the story: first, the initial discussion looked to be one purely about running a polite letter-writing campaign, and second, the subsequent inflammatory comments that were made looked to come from an agent provocateur.

Well now the Press Complaints Commission are investigating, as The Guardian explains.

  • How can it possibly be considered “polite” to harrass people with angry political missives based on their having been born into a particular racial group?

  • It really doesn’t matter if the letters are polite or not (and given some of the frothing insanity to be found on that forum, I would be surprised if courtesy and restraint characterised any letters they wrote) – it is disgraceful to target a letter-writing campaign at private individuals because of their race.
