Sample Letters

Dear Editor,

I am writing to ask you to please stop devoting space to sports events. I am not interested in sports and consider any coverage to be a waste of space. I know sports coverage is the lowest common denominator and many people like it but consider this:

Less than .25 percent of the total content of your periodical is dedicated to horoscopes which is of occasional interest to most people. Less than 2 percent is dedicated to comics which are read by most subscribers. Fully 15 percent is dedicated to sports which fewer than 40 percent of the population cares about. I suggest you re-evaluate your audience. While you do that, I'll be subscribing to XXXXXXXX which doesn't find sports as newsworthy as your fine paper.

Sincerely,

Your ex-subscriber
