In an otherwise interesting story regarding my company, Carlsberg-Tetley creates npd team to launch “new age” alcoholic drinks (MW October 27), it seems your reporter could not resist a petty sideswipe in the last paragraph regarding our acting marketing director, Doug Scott.
We have been subject to intense scrutiny over recent months by your magazine and, on the whole, the coverage has been reasonable, if not always accurate.
However, I feel it is time to go back to reporting facts rather than speculation. The phrase “it has been suggested” is wonderful for a journalist with nothing more to report than a malicious rumour. It requires no source, no attribution and no supporting evidence.
