No, but the link is to a story where Ben Stokes calls The Sun's treatment of his parents despicable.

I see that point in general that can happen, but in this instance they haven't repeated story, they've quoted Stokes condemnation of it but not referred to what the family tragedy was.

When a high profile figure issues a public statement about the ethics of a front page story, should other outlets ignore that statement?  Should the rest of the press have ignored the phone-hacking scandal or the Hillsborough lies because they are not perfect?

bbc, sky and the guardian all did repeat the story only to edit it out later......

I don't think that's the case for the BBC, at least. I read that story pretty much as it went live and it didn't have the specifics. Have you any evidence for that claim?

But even if you are right, at least they did edit it out - the Sun's story is still up, they haven't apologised, they sent the reporter round to his Mum, and they tried to justify the story by saying it was sourced from a family member which is duplicitous since the source is his Mum's ex-husband's daughter by a previous relationship  rather than a member of the Stokes family.
