Editorial Complaints

The Tablet is committed to observing the highest editorial standards. In the print edition, and on the website, we do all we can to make sure that our editorial content is fair and accurate. We also take care to ensure that our news stories are balanced and unbiased.

Tablet journalists and freelance contributors are expected to be honest, open and courteous to everyone they deal with in the course of their work.

A letter to the editor will normally suffice if you want to take issue with a position taken in a leader, column or article, or if you wish to clarify a point or correct a fact in a news story. You may be encouraged to write a letter for publication if you wish to challenge a point of view.

However, The Tablet also has a formal procedure for dealing with complaints which is set out below.


 The Tablet’s complaints procedure has been set up to safeguard the paper’s editorial integrity. The editor may therefore decline to investigate complaints that:

  • Are vexatious or trivial
  • Use the procedure to lobby or argue a point of view
  • Disagree with views or beliefs expressed in The Tablet
  • Relate to advertising or reader offers

The Complaints Procedure

If you have a complaint, you should write to the editor here giving details of the article or story you are complaining about. If the item was in the print edition, you should quote the publication date on the cover and the page in which the piece appears.

If you read the item on the website, you should, if possible, provide a link to it and give the date on which it first appeared.

Please go on to set out the nature of your complaint as clearly and as concisely as you can. We recommend you do so in no more than 500 words.

The editor takes complaints very seriously and will deal with you fairly and courteously. He reserves the right not to consider complaints that are abusive or offensive.


What happens next

You will receive an acknowledgement of your letter.

The editor will investigate your complaint and aim to give you a final response within 28 days. This may not always be possible. He may ask you to provide additional information or there may be a delay if the journalist or writer concerned is away. If the complaint relates to a complex matter, it may be necessary to consult others.

If the editor determines that your complaint is justified, he may decide to place a correction or clarification in the print edition and/or The Tablet website.


If you wish to appeal

Should you be dissatisfied with the editor’s decision, The Tablet has an independent adjudicator to consider appeals. Please inform the editor if you wish to appeal and you will be informed of the next step.
