I wrote to the SMH complaining about the
removal of Kate Mannix’s article. They replied thus:

Recently you contacted ReaderLink. Your interest in the newspaper is appreciated.


The following information outlines the Herald's response:

The opinion piece was removed from the website for legal reasons. It is available in the September 13 print edition of the Herald.

Your ongoing feedback and opinions will help us publish a better newspaper.

article.
