I would like to respond on behalf of Dateline NBC to John McCauley's letter to the editor of Oct. 18, 2005. Dateline NBC is, indeed, following the Harold Fish matter, and we have appreciated meeting with Mr. McCauley and many other people on both sides of the case.
We do want to clarify for your readers, however, that the information Mr. McCauley provided was just one factor in our decision to report on the case.
Moreover, as Mr. McCauley now understands, we would prefer that any of your readers with information to share contact me directly at 818-840-2549.
Karen Epstein, Dateline NBC
