Daily Mail Apologizes To Casino Owner Steve Wynn
Paper Said It Erroneously Reported Wynn Had 'Alleged Links To The Mafia'
London-based media outlet the Daily Mail issued an apology to Las Vegas casino owner Steve Wynn. According to the newspaper, it falsely stated that Wynn had “alleged links to the mafia.”
The Monday correction, which admitted to what it concludes were other reporting mistakes, is in regards to a recently published article, the Daily Mail said.
Comments on the article were disabled “for legal reasons.”
The Mail Online receives more than 100 million unique hits to its website per month, according to The Economist. According to Alexa.com, the site’s traffic puts it 127th globally.
“We apologise to Mr[.] Wynn for any distress the article may have caused him,” the correction concluded. For more, read the full text of the apology.
Wynn was recently successful in a slander suit against Girls Gone Wild founder Joe Francis, after Francis alleged Wynn had threatened to kill him over a gambling debt. The court system sided with Wynn, who maintained that Francis was lying.
One of the latest casino moves for Wynn is a push for a gambling operation in Massachusetts.
According to Forbes, the 70-year-old had a networth of $2.5 billion as September 2012.
