Don't believe everything you read in the newspapers

I am told the News Letter are continuing their shabby campaign in today's paper by continuing to stoke up controversy around A Danner With Drennan. Sickening - particularly when they know the truth. I spoke to one of their journalists by phone last week, later emailed him and copied it to the Editor. But still the campaign continues. Newspaper sales must be down for them to resort to this...

Was that the report written by Staff reporter @ http://www.newsletter.co.uk/news/Mystery-as-UlsterScots-show-pulled.4525860.jp ?

Dave,
Yep, that's the one. The statement I emailed to them included a jibe at them for having created the controversy in the first place. But of course they chose to not print that, but to regurgitate a month-old statement instead. Quality journalism at its best.

The great thing about the internet is you, if you want to, can publish your side of the story.IF you do, don't hide behind a name like Staff blogger.
