Jan's paper, the Daily Mail, absolutely adores it when people flock to Ofcom to complain about something offensive, especially when it's something they've only learned about second-hand via an inflammatory article in a newspaper. So it would undoubtedly be delighted if, having read this, you paid a visit to the Press Complaints Commission website to lodge a complaint about Moir's article on the basis that it breaches sections 1, 5 and 12 of its code of practice.
Daily Mail column on Stephen Gately death provokes record complaints by Robert Booth
"• Protests crash PCC's website and flood internet
• Companies rush to pull advertising from website"
Why there was nothing 'human' about Jan Moir's column on the death of Stephen Gately by Charlie Brooker
Another excellent blow-by-blow dissection of Moir's article, which shows what a mockery her 'apology' is.
Yesterday by Derren Brown
(from All Your Minds Are Belong To Us)
"Moir issued a statement saying she was a victim of an orchestrated campaign. Moir’s interpretation was wrong, and betrays a misguided notion about the nature of Twitter and similar forms of networking. There is no orchestration – just the rapid spread of information."
Brown's view of the Moir affair, and the power (for good) of twitter.
