Media briefs: Age correction … Bolt’s blues … Fairfax cost-cutting? …

Strewth provides a rare look into Andrew Bolt's real tastes. Plus other media tidbits of the day.

Correction of the day. It was concerning to read the details in The Age yesterday about Tamil asylum seekerĀ Lee Seemanpillai, who committed suicide by setting himself on fire. It's a distressing story all-round, and according to The Age's story:
"Mr Mylvaganam said that Mr Seemanpillai had previously expressed his wish to be an organ donor, and his liver, an eye, both kidneys and a lung were removed prior to his death."
But today's correction sets the record straight ...

organ donation

That is the sort of detail a sub should perhaps check ... if Fairfax had any left, we're sure they would have.
