Extra balance needed

Peter Bolwell, by email

ImageI was left a little bewildered by your two-page rant about the Guardian’s coverage of the war in Yemen (PN 2502–2503). Not that I read the Guardian myself, but since that paper was singled out as being particularly poor I was rather expecting some comparison with the (presumably) much better reporting on this issue in eg The Times or the Daily Telegraph or the Daily Mail.

Surprisingly it seems there was no space for any such comment in your piece. Presumably in the interests of clarity and balance you will do a feature on this in your next issue?
