CallNet 0800 lambasts ‘reputable’ journalists

That's us in the clear, then...

Toll-free ISP CallNet0800 may be fearless when it comes to blaming BT for being unable to handle calls to its registration hotline, but it's not quite so tough when it comes to journos. In a statement issued yesterday, a spokesman for CallNet0800 thundered: "It is also truly deplorable that reputable journalists should publish or repeat wholly inaccurate and unsubstantiated information without even the professionalism to check on the veracity of such statements. "Even the most junior of cub reporters should know the difference between phoning a sales line and utilising the service. A good analogy might be that if you go to a corner shop and they have sold out of the Daily Telegraph, you don't then automatically and instantly label the Daily Telegraph a bad product." Whatever can he mean? ®
