To the Editor:

There are factors besides relative cost that will decide which New York City tabloid will survive [“They Stoop for Quarters”, May 21].

How fortunate we are to be living in one of the few remaining free societies, with a wealth of information sources available for any citizen to access.

Today in New York City, we have ongoing circulation battles between the Daily News and the Post. They face competition from other daily newspapers that have a strong presence in their own communities, such as Long Island’s Newsday and The Staten Island Advance. In addition, a growing population of new immigrants supports its own newspapers, radio and television stations.

In the marketplace of ideas, let us hope there will continue to be room for everyone.
