I am writing to complain about an article that appeared in the ' Winners and Losers' section in last weekend's edition of your newspaper.
The article which analyses the growth of my educational publishing company "ABC", describes me as 'a man with surprisingly little education' and attributes my success to ' aggressive ambition and a complete disregard for the welfare of his employees'.
This is, of course, totally untrue, and although I do not intend to justify myself or my business methods, their are one two observations I feel ought to make.
Firstly, the economics degree I obtained from Bristol University speaks for itself,particularly, I feel, as I graduated with first class honours. In addition, whilst I am proud to consider myself ambitious, this is not at the expense of my staff, who would, I know, be only too pleased for you to interview them. Indeed,they would be disappointed if they were not given the opportunity to inform your readers of their generous salary, impressive working conditions and excellent promotion prospects.
As you can imagine, your article has caused considerable pane and embarrassment, both too myself and my family, who found it extremely upsetting. I trust you will print an apology in the next edition of your newspaper, pointing out and rectifying the inaccuracies in the article.
Is this correct?
