The Sun, On The Other Hand

What readers have been hearing back re: Clarkson:

Dear Reader

Thank you for taking the time and trouble to write to us. We like to respond to readers’ comments whether they are positive suggestions or criticisms because the success of our paper is based on understanding your views.

Although we may get many more letters of appreciation and praise than complaints, important views such as yours are taken very seriously.

I’m sorry if you were offended by the content of Jeremy Clarkson’s column, but I must point out that columnists in any newspaper are given editorial freedom and we take that particularly seriously at The Sun.

Not only do we not censor controversial points of view if they don’t happen to fall in line with the paper’s editorial stance, we believe it’s important that columnists have an independent voice, ensuring that a variety of opinions are available to readers.

We constantly strive to give satisfaction, and I can assure you that your views will be heard and discussed at the highest level.

Best wishes

Yours sincerely

Graham Dudman
