Letter: Unjust attack on young paper

Click to follow
JASON NISSE's report 'Tabloid price war cripples Today' (18 July) was wildly inaccurate.

Mr Nisse quoted 'industry sources' claiming that Today had been the major victim of the tabloid price war. He had no evidence to support his claim and it is simply untrue. Our circulation remains steady. We dropped only half a per cent on the week in question, less than both the Daily Mail and the Daily Star.

I am sorry that a reporter on the Independent on Sunday, of all publications, would write a piece that could damage a young newspaper trying, with some recent success, to establish itself in a fierce market.

Editor, Today
