Paul McKenna's dodgy degree complaint rejected

The PCC has this week rejected a complaint by hypnotist Paul McKenna about what the Mirror had headlined as a 'load of doc and bull'.
PCC Ruling HERE In the article Mirror columnist Victor Lewis-Smith had discussed the credibility of degrees-by-post and suggested that McKenna's PhD from Lasalle University in Louisiana was one of these dodgy degrees.
McKenna had said that he was not aware that his PhD did not match up to the exacting academic standards normally associated with such works and had discontinued using it in his publicity material.
The PCC ruled that Lewis-Smith had been fairly expressing his opinion and readers would be aware of that.
