How to read a newspaper (continued)

Noted in the Irish Times, 2nd February 2013, page 6.

“Eoin was born in moderate condition at 6.35 am on July 30th, 2002, without any inherent defect or genetic abnormality, as the hospital, among various claims, had alleged”.

This sentence means the hospital alleged Eoin … “was without any inherent defect or genetic abnormality”. This cannot have been the case; there would have been no proceedings, for the newspaper to report, otherwise.

IT SHOULD READ:

“Eoin was born in moderate condition at 6.35 am on July 30th, 2002, without any inherent defect or genetic abnormality, despite various claims, including the contrary, by the hospital”.
