Analysis of IPSO Complaints

Independent Press Standards Agency (IPSO) handles complaints about accuracy etc. in the media. Here, I analyze the complaints received by IPSO.

IPSO has received 371 complaints as of May 20th, 2016. Of the 371 complaints, The Telegraph alone received 35 complaints, or about 9.4% of the total complaints. It was followed closely by The Mail, with 31 complaints. The Times had 25 complaints filed against it, The Mirror and The Express 22 each and The Sun, 19 complaints.

However, generally less than half the number of complaints were completely or partly upheld. Topping the list was The Express and The Telegraph with 10 upheld complaints each. And following close behind was The Times with 8 complaints, The Mail with 6, and the The Sun and the Daily Star with 4 each.
