A bent needle on your moral compass

12 June 2011

From Mr Michael Holman

London, E3 UK

Sir, In your editorial “In praise of a free and vigorous press” (July 9) you describe the News of the World as a “venerable” tabloid newspaper. The Oxford English Dictionary defines “venerable” thus: “accorded great respect because of age, wisdom or character”. Did you mislay your dictionary? Or is your moral compass somewhat wonky?
