Reader feedback on a NY dominated IHT
Friday, November 1st, 2002
Assuming that the the letters page of today’s International Herald Tribune contains a representative sample of reader opinion, readers are traumatized by the prospect of a New York dominated paper. I count sixteen negative letters, two centrist and two in favor of the new structure. Depending on how you filter the numbers, if the paper’s editorial mix does become dominated by New York editors, the IHT will lose either 16 readers… or 80% of its circulation.
