Page Six writer wanted $$$ to stop inaccurate coverage

ny times running front page story tomorrow!

The Following Statement Was Issued by Michael Sitrick, a Spokesman for Ron Burkle, in Response to Media Inquiries

LOS ANGELES, April 7 /PRNewswire/ -- For more than a year, Mr. Burkle,
his attorneys and other representatives have been complaining to New York
Post editors, management and attorneys about the inaccurate items that have
appeared about him in the Post's Page Six column. After his
representatives' pleas produced no results, Mr. Burkle wrote a personal
letter to the Post's owner Rupert Murdoch. Mr. Burkle has repeatedly said
that he understands that a person might not always like what is written
about him, but that his complaints were not about unflattering items, but
false ones. Unfortunately, even his plea to Mr. Murdoch appeared to fall on
deaf ears.

Mr. Burkle said that while he has been asked not to discuss the details
of Mr. Stern's conversation with him -- because of the ongoing
investigation -- he did say that the story in the NY Daily News was
accurate and that he was shocked angered and saddened by what he heard.
"Corporate governance is not just for the boardrooms," Mr. Burkle said.
"It is also important in the newsrooms. I am a big believer in the fourth
estate. I feel strongly that honest, hardworking journalists make a major
contribution to a free society."
