Dear Starbucks, Thanks But No Thanks.

The Drum received this reply from Tim McCoy, Starbuck's Director of Communications:

The piece by Dan Geech, based on a blog and nothing else, makes a lot of assumptions about Starbucks, and a lot of it from a book first published 13 years ago. We’re serious about ethics and, in fact, we were voted Europe’s most ethical coffee company, our coffee is 100% Fairtrade in Europe and ethically sourced by other standards globally. Our workers own shares in the company and we support UK youth projects across the country. Could your piece please reflect a bit of balance and fact-checking? It’s highly mis-leading. Of course if you don’t want to take my word for it, take a look at this Guardian piece on Starbucks http://www.guardian.co.uk/money/2010/nov/06/starbucks-employees-africa-c...

Clarkson rakes in £3.14m amidst controversies

Clarkson rakes in £3.14m amidst controversies

This is a very good deal for Clarkson. On one hand the BBC has also done well out of the Top Gear franchise. But on the other there is no doubt it owes as much to its success to the BBC's unique status, as it does to Clarkson himself. As a publically funded body, for example, the BBC was able to invest must more into this format that would have been possible in the private sector. With that in mind some might argue that this arrangement is too generous - Clarkson is getting a lot of reward, but in fact took no risk.
