Times backs down after Tory libel challenge

The Times has admitted it was wrong to report in February that
Conservative election advisor Lynton Crosby believed the party had no
chance of winning the expected General Election.
Crosby filed a libel writ over the story headlined “Election is already lost, top advisor tells Howard”.
This week the dispute was said to have been
resolved “amicably”.
The Times printed a clarification admitting that the article was “an
exagerration of the advice The Times understood Mr Crosby had given to
the Tory leadership”.
