The day after the publisher of The Daily Herald, Rona Rahlf, told me she would take my complaint about their editors under advisement, I sent her this note.
Any decisions, yet? Here are the facts of the case:
What the leader of the CERN team, Jasper Kirkby, said about their conclusions: ”At the moment, it actually says nothing about a possible cosmic-ray effect on clouds and climate, but it’s a very important first step.”
What the Daily Herald editorial board said about the CERN team’s conclusions: ”Scientists there have concluded that cosmic rays play a much larger role than previously thought in creating clouds on earth.”
If the Daily Herald corrects errors of fact, is there any way to get around the need to correct this?
Note that I’m not asking you to fire Randy and Jim. They seem like regular guys, who maybe need to take a peek outside the bomb shelter once in a while. I just want a retraction.
If you are similarly disgusted by a “news” organization that can’t deal with simple fact corrections, please e-mail Ms. Rahlf.
