Your 'What the Papers Say' article (PRWeek, 13 April) demonstrates what a blunt instrument evaluation can be when it comes to qualitative measurement of message delivery.

You report that the news coverage surrounding publication of LEK's report contained significant 'negative' messages concerning Channel 4's future financial performance.
