Newspaper retractions should match the size and page of the original falsehood.

Recently The Sun newspaper falsely reported that 1 in 5 Muslims sympathise with jihadis.

They have since retracted their statement in a small "corrections and clarifications" box.

We Britons are tired of irresponsible journalism. All proven misleading headlines must be retracted with an apology. The retraction should be on the same page, and printed the same size as the original defamation. The font must be the same and the luring colours should match. The financial loss that papers may incur for a less than titulating headline will hopefully, in time, teach them a valuable lesson in researching properly and responsible journalism.
