The Word is sorry

Morrissey has had his day in court over the NME story from last year, and has won an apology from a magazine. Although it's The Word that has apologised in the High Court, for a piece by David Quantick that referenced Tim Jonze's original NME report and, according to Morrissey's legal team, could, in the words of the MediaGuardian report:

have been construed to suggest that he was a racist, held racist opinions or that - as the child of migrant parents - he was a hypocrite.

The magazine offered its sincerest apologies to Morrissey.

Morrissey himself issued a statement reiterating his intention to pursue the NME and Conor McNicholas.
