ΛΑΒΑΜΕ ΑΠΑΝΤΗΣΗ ΑΠΟ ΤΟ LONELY PLANET

Πριν από λίγες ημέρες είχαμε αναρτήσει ένα θέμα σχετικά με το λάθος που είχε γίνει σε γνωστό ταξιδιωτικό περιοδικό http://axion-esti.blogspot.com/2009/01/blog-post_12.html .
Σήμερα λάβαμε απάντηση από το LONELY PLANET:

Dear Dimitris,
Thanks for writing in - and sorry for any offense or misunderstanding caused by the article in the first issue of the Lonely Planet magazine. We certainly didn't intend to mislead anyone reading the article about the true Greek nationality of Kastellorizo, or to offend anyone. There was no deliberate intent - and we were well aware that Kastellorizo is a Greek island and indeed said so in the text of the article. The big shortcoming on our part was in not making clearer that we were including a Greek island in an article primarily about Turkish destinations - and failing to appreciate the sensitive nature of the subject, for which we apologise. We've definitely learnt from the mistake.


best wishes, Malcolm

The editor will be including an apology and clarification in the March issue of the magazine and in the meantime he's written this statement:

From: Peter Grunert, Editor, Lonely Planet Magazine

I’m sorry that our magazine feature titled “How about Turkey for Christmas?” created the impression that Kastellorizo might be a Turkish island. While the other destinations covered in the article are Turkish, I was aware and ensured we stated that Kastellorizo is Greek. With hindsight we could have made the nationality of the island even clearer. I apologise to anyone who felt offended by this. Our intent was entirely to help travellers discover some beautiful places to visit, including the Greek island of Kastellorizo. This oversight came about during the hectic period of creating our first-ever issue. In our March issue (as our February issue has just gone to print) we will publish representative examples of the letters we’ve received with a clarification. We hope our actions will go some way to repair any offense the article has caused.
