SECTION: B; Pg. 7
LENGTH: 781 words
HEADLINE: Why so little memo coverage?
Question: Why don't you print more information on the Downing Street memo? This is a huge story. - Richard Emerick
Answer: Good point, although this is one of those continuing stories that's been a bit difficult to follow. However, as a result of your question, one of our wire news editors took another look at the stories available from our wire services and found one that we were able to publish in Thursday's paper. We won't promise that we'll publish a story every day on this issue, but we'll keep an eye out for significant developments.
We receive scores of stories about Iraq each day and probably could fill every page of the first section with news and analysis about Iraq, but that simply isn't practical. - Gary Graham, managing editor
