PCC clears Telegraph’s share-tipping column

Newspapers told the PCC its journalist had acted properly at all times

The Press Complaints Commission has cleared the Daily and Sunday Telegraph after an investigation into whether the papers' share-tipping column breached financial journalism rules.

A reader of the Questor column complained to the PCC that certain shares in which the column's editor had a stated financial interest were being tipped with excessive frequency.

The complainant highlighted how a particular investment trust had been tipped on nine occasions between 14 January 2009 and 15 April, 2010.
