Media ambush (letter)


by Greg O'Regan

News Weekly, June 29, 2002
Sir,

I am uneasy that a television journalist pursues the Catholic Church while he seeks redress at law against accusations against himself by another large organisation that he plagiarised a program and was less than professional.

No use suing if the defendant has no money. The usual thing in such cases is to settle by either a payment or an apology or both, and parties agreeing to be silent about details. The journalist must have considered the prospects for his own compensation and restoration of reputation. So, is his investigation of the Church a means to enhance the latter?
