Let's hope that Herald Sun journalist/gossip columnist Mark Dunn and/or the paper's editor on Saturday doesn't have a love child. The frontpage story was a low even for a tabloid:
EXCLUSIVE: THE late billionaire Richard Pratt has left a $22.8 million fortune - more than three-quarters of his personal assets - to his 11-year-old love child, according to his last will.Not only did they name her in the story but also included a large photo in case any of her friends didn't know about it. The Ethics Unit must be optional in some journalism courses these days.
Visy tycoon Richard Pratt leaves fortune to 11-year-old love child ... (Herald Sun 16 Jan 2010)
Like all these cases I feel ambivalent about publicising something that should have remained private, namely the minor's identity.
