    Why I love working in the media

    Posted By Alastair Otter

    A reader writes us a blistering email. Apparently he’s been unable to find the email address of a colleague that he is trying to contact. With a healthy dose of sarcasm he points out that he found our postal address and, while he thinks it ridiculous in this day and age not to be able email a journalist, he wrote my colleague a letter. Unfortunately, and perhaps because of the postal strike he says, the letter went unanswered. So he wrote another letter and posted that. Perhaps we’ll get that letter, he says with ever-increasing sarcasm. Interestingly he has managed to cc the journalist in question in his email, so she responds: 

    “Dear Mr XXX, thank you for your email. We will respond by post.”
