The Daily Record, the Daily Mirror and other newspapers in the Trinity Mirror stable have followed the lead of the Daily Mail by setting up a corrections and clarifications column on its second page.
Introducing the new section yesterday, the Daily Record told readers: “We pride ourselves in journalism that is honest, fair and accurate."
The piece continued: “We do our best to correct errors or publish clarifications as soon as possible.
“Our journalists adhere to the Editors' Code of Practice, which sets the benchmark for professional standards and is enforced by the Press Complaints Commission.
…”We are starting For The Record column so we can offer a more prominent platform for corrections and clarifications.
“If we do slip up, we will set the record straight in a clear, no-nonsense manner.
