Apology For Fake Press Release Published In Error

Published: Tue 28 Aug 2012 05:32 PM
Earlier today, Scoop received a fake press release purporting to be from a number of groups and people regarding a boycott of certain goods from the Middle East.
It was published in error in the politics wire and removed immediately the fake was spotted.
Those named in the deleted press release had no knowledge or involvement in the fake press release and we apologise for any offence or embarrassment
The mistake is regretted and Scoop apologises for the error.
