Today in Media Files, the papers react to charges laid against Cardinal George Pell and the Herald Sun says goodbye to 19 photographers today as part of News Corp cuts.

Pell in the papers. Charges laid against Cardinal George Pell have dominated today's front pages, as editorials in most of the major dailies have echoed calls from the Catholic Church and Victoria's Director of Public Prosecutions to exercise restraint to ensure a fair trial. The Fairfax papers have also published a comment piece by the Newcastle Herald's Joanne McCarthy, who won a Walkley Award for her work reporting on child sexual abuse in the Catholic Church.

    Morgan the essence of the subjective msm – whining about plebs doing what they (the media) themselves do for money.

    I recently took up the oz offer of $8 for 8 weeks online (I won’t be renewing). Similar to here, readers can leave comments. I note that after articles about Pell, there’s no such ability. Hmm.

      To be fair, the Pell cases is sub judice.

        Plenty of articles, option pieces and editorials though.

    Great wrap-up as usual but the Herald Sun photog is Wayne Ludbey, not Lubley

      Thanks Michael, fixed now. Wayne Ludbey is one of my favourite photographers at the Herald Sun, don’t know how I let that one through!
