Moir and Moir offensive

October 19, 2009

So, on Friday Jan Moir published a heinously offensive column in the Daily Mail. I’ll write more about that later, but someone on Twitter asked to see the response I got from the Managing Editor’s office after I’d emailed to complain about the article. It doesn’t actually address the content of my original email, and, of course, there’s no apology.

Here it is:

“Thank you for your correspondence re the Jan Moir article. We welcome feedback – whether positive or negative – about the paper and our writers. Our Columnists’ views have prompted a widespread response and debate. You may also be interested in the column by Janet Street-Porter in today’s edition.

Thank you for taking the trouble to send us your own point of view.

Your sincerely,

Managing editor’s office”
