Statement from The Sydney Morning Herald Editor-in-Chief Darren Goodsir

Darren Goodsir

I have become aware that Mike Carlton has corresponded with some Herald readers and letter writers using inappropriate and offensive language.

This behaviour is completely unacceptable.

I have asked Mike to apologise for these actions. Mike regrets his behaviour and will be contacting affected readers to apologise. 

On behalf of the Herald, I too apologise for any offence caused.

In dealing with our readers, it is a basic principle that our staff, columnists and contributors should always behave with respect and courtesy.
