The New York Times Responds

I guess the NY Times is learning from CBS. The text of an email I recieved from the NY Times:

Dear Mr. Blatt,
As a matter of policy this office does not address issues that arose before Daniel Okrent's tenure began, except insofar as they relate to the paper's actions from December 1, 2003, forward. I am sure you will understand that, were we to do this any other fashion, we would disappear into an endless tunnel. We also don't address readers' issues with books by Times reporters' and columnists, rather we address issues with Times coverage; as you might imagine these concerns certainly keep us busy enough. I can assure you however that I will share your observations with corporate communications and with senior Times editors.
Thanks for writing.
Arthur Bovino
Office of the Public Editor
The New York Times
