Times Publishes Correction For The Sun

The Times has issued a correction on behalf of The Sun, following the controversial poll recently published.

The Sun recently published a poll, which stated that "one in five British Muslims has sympathy for ISIS".

The headline and poll was published on the front cover of The Sun, and garnered 2, 000 IPSO complaints.

The headline that The Sun used stated "1 in 5 Brit Muslims' sympathy for jihadis". The newspaper reported that this statement was based on evidence from a poll of 1, 000 British muslims.

The article said: “Nearly one in five British Muslims has some sympathy with those who have fled the UK to fight for IS in Syria.”

The Times published an article last week under the headline "One in five British Muslims has sympathy for ISIS", however the article went on to make clear the meaning of this ambiguous statement, saying: "One in five Muslims has sympathy for fighters who choose to leave Britain to wage war in Syria, according to an opinion poll. The Survation survey of 1,000 British Muslims found that 19 per cent either felt some sympathy, or a lot of sympathy, for young Muslims ‘who leave the UK to join fighters in Syria’.”
