Bet you never thought you'd see 'PCC' and 'forced to apologise' in the same sentence. Particularly in the sentence "A newspaper who told a lot of lies has been forced to apologise by the PCC".
But anyway, this isn't the body itself but its grande fromage, Baroness Luscombe, who was caught saying something unsubstantiated, which hadn't been checked, and which couldn't be stood up. It's tempting to think that this might have been the result of presiding over a body whose job it is to let people off and not punish them when they say things which are unsubstantiated, which haven't been checked and which couldn't be stood up; but that would be the depiction of crude stereotype, and we really ought to be above such things.
Even so, pfffffffffffffft.
