Character in public life (letter)


by Sean Duffy

News Weekly, September 21, 2002
Congratulations on publishing the excellent comment by Bill Muehlenberg on the importance of character in public life. (News Weekly, July 27, 2002)

To paraphrase Mr Muehlenberg, there are some who have argued that the disclosure of politicians' private lives is not in the public interest. However, such a position infers that the integrity required of our elected representatives is not compromised by infidelity to the more fundamental and long-term commitment of marriage.

Yet in the aftermath of the Kernot-Evans revelations, I am not aware of any other commentator who has made public the sorts of observations that have been put forward in this journal. What does that say about the media?

Sean Duffy,
