Forbes.com CEO has written to NYT editor about the story NYT did on Aug 28th (and we wrote about it here), questioning the site’s traffic numbers, among other things. This AdAge story says that Jim Spanfeller is accusing the Times of “competitive hypocrisy”…NYT’s “own website presents higher unique visitors than third-party numbers show…Shame on you “Not for promoting the Times’ own log file numbers, but for suggesting we are somehow wrong in promoting our log file numbers while doing so yourself and failing to point it out specifically in the article. That smacks of competitive hypocrisy.”
NYT responded : Lawrence Ingrassia, editor of the Times business section disputed Spanfeller’s assertions that the article omitted certain key points…he agreed, however, that the article should have described how the Times describes its web traffic.
