Is another correction and apology on the way from Fairfax Media to a leading media figure?

Last week, The Sydney Morning Herald published this correction to a story about former News Corp boss Kim Williams; now Seven West Media chairman Kerry Stokes is on the prowl. The reclusive Stokes is enjoying an unwelcome moment in the spotlight thanks to the publication of Margaret Simons’ unauthorised biography Kerry Stokes: Self-made man, released today through Penguin Books.

    I love the irony of a media mogul whose company, makes a living speculating about others (including the politics of those they don’t like), feeding gossip and pries into the lives of others, being so shy about his own privacy? Just like Murdoch?
