    Lucy Kellaway, writing for the Financial Times, responds to an advertiser threatening the publication. I’ve had that happen before — I wish my response was this good.


    You say the FT management should think about “unacceptable biases” and its relationship with its advertisers. My piece was not biased and I fear you misunderstand our business model. It is my editors’ steadfast refusal to consider the impact of stories on advertisers that makes us the decent newspaper we are. It is why I want to go on working here. It is why the FT goes on paying me.
