Mail on sunday apologizes for falsely saying female reporter wanted to work in the nude

The Mail on Sunday apologizes to female journalist for falsely saying she was interested in working nude:

On April 1 we said, incorrectly, that the freelance reporter and presenter Stephanie O’Keeffe struggled to read her scripts when working at BBC Radio 5 Live.

We now accept that this was not the case.

Our report could also have been taken to suggest that Ms O’Keeffe obtained her BBC work by submitting a CV that contained her vital statistics and expressed a willingness to work nude.

That was not our intention and we are sorry for any misunderstanding or embarrassment these errors may have caused.

Hat tip to Tabloid Watch

Correction: This post mistakenly attributed the apology to the Daily Mail, rather than The Mail on Sunday.
