I loved the excuse: "The call was never meant to get through; we were supposed to get hung up on".
Um. But it did get through. And it was broadcast.
Mark Latham was instructive on this last night on PM Live when he said (to paraphrase): Let's forget about the fact a nurse took her own life, which of itself is horrible. When it's all stripped back, this was a pair of DJs who, under false pretenses, phoned a hospital to obtain and broadcast the private medical details of an ill and pregnant woman. Irrespective of who that woman was, it was a gross invasion of her privacy. Spot on.

  • I have worked in politics, public policy and strategic communications for over 30 years. I was recently awarded a doctorate in Australian politics at the University of Sydney. My thesis was on the (changing) relationship between the ALP and unions. I have been blogging since November 2003 and over the past decade I have written many articles on politics, public relations and social media for newspapers, magazines and websites. I love literature particularly John McGahern and James Joyce. The header photo is of the Clarence River taken before dawn at Ulmarra in 2012.
