ALTA® Responds to Forbes Article

November 1, 2006

In last week’s ALTA E-News, we forwarded a link to a recent article in Forbes that blasted the title industry. ALTA has written a six-page letter to Forbes to Forbes Editor-in-Chief, Steve Forbes refuting the major inaccuracies in the story. The letter is posted on the ALTA Web site. A shorter “letter to the editor” will be submitted for publication in the magazine.

ALTA spent considerable time with this reporter and we were astounded at the negative tone of the article and the number of things that, even after we discussed them with him, he did not get, or would not listen to. We encourage members to write their own letters to Mr. Forbes and to Bill Baldwin, Editor, Forbes Magazine, 60 5th Avenue, New York, NY 10011.

See ALTA's letter.
