DAVID Lister's piece on public relations firms blacklisting journalists who are even mildly critical of their clients (''Hollywood blacklist sets out to `manage' UK media'', 13 November) eschews the obvious solution. Journalists should collectively boycott celebrity interviews.

This would remove the PR companies' raison d'etre and restore to journalists their proper function of analysing the works in which the celebrities appear.
