Art Journalist Wins Libel Award


Art journalist Sarah Thornton, who writes for the New Yorker, the Economist and Artforum and is author of the popular book Seven Days in the Art World, has won £65,000 ($106, 736 US) in damages against the Telegraph Media Group, publisher of the Daily Telegraph. London’s high court found that a 2008 review in the Daily Telegraph of Thornton’s book, by journalist Lynn Barber, contained two factual “errors,” amounting to libel and malicious falsehood.

The Daily Telegraph plans to appeal. Via Artnet.
