In our issue of February 10 2003, we suggested that Rob Harris, editor of York Vision, was racist. nouse now accepts that he is not, and therefore we withdraw the allegations of racism. nouse apologises for any embarrassment caused to Rob Harris and we accept that the article we were referring to was legitimate political comment.
We also accept that Rob Harris has never deliberately omitted any article or letter from Vision because it expressed views supposedly contradictory to his own. The article, which we suggested had deliberately not been published by Rob Harris, was actually received by Vision before he became editor and was in fact due to a clerical error by the Politics Editor at the time.
nouse also accepts that Mr. Harris‚ consultation with lawyers should not have been the subject of derision in our March edition.
