Letter to the examiner 2 Feb 2017

Recently we have had some issues with the examiner publishing incorrect pictures.  Despite meetings and discussions it continues.  This is a copy of a letter sent today:

Dear Mel,

I am afraid that the published photograph of Robert Read instead of Neil Armstrong for the highest break will only see Tony Clegg being deluged with telephone calls from League members who see it as the fault of the League Committee for publishing yet another photograph of Robert. You will appreciate that this is not the first time that this has happened this season and despite our having gone to great lengths to provide Gary Doughty’s photograph the photo wasn’t used and deemed to be “old news”.

I send the reports to the Examiner by Monday morning at the latest, invariably these days they are received by your office on the Sunday and whilst we have no editorial control over what you are able to publish, we are of the opinion that the failure to carry the individual’s photograph alongside the story diminishes the achievement, especially so when the photograph is of the third placed break maker.

We need to address the issue of how best we move forward to ensure that you have the necessary information to print the complete article and, assuming that the print space is available, have the correct photograph to compliment the headline.

Regards

John Wilson

League Reporting Secretary.
