NEWSPAPER DEFENDS CRITICISM OF ISLINGTON CARE HOMES

The Evening Standard last night said it stood by its decision to identify two Islington care homes in an article criticising their management last autumn, the Guardian reports (p9).

The report of an independent inquiry into the homes published yesterday found the homes had been 'out of control' at one time but did not substantiate the main claims made about the homes by the Evening Standard.

It said the paper had made errors; was guilt of sensationalism; and had been 'irresponsible in the extreme' in publishing the full addresses of the homes.

But the Standard said it stood by its decision to identify the homes to ensure reforms would occur and would do the same thing again. It pointed out the inquiry found its articles were well researched and contained 'important truths'.
