Today in Media Files, someone has hit the wrong button at Fairfax again, and the UK press regulator has found that the Daily Mail breached Prince Harry's privacy.

Wrong button strikes again at the Fin. The subbing cuts may have gone a bit too far at the Fairfax papers. A Crikey tipster has spotted a message in the Australian Financial Review on Friday for a subeditor left in a now-corrected graphic on the online version of a story about the CPA, saying a subheadline was needed to explain the information: "Subby in here explaining the letter below".

    Emily, it’s always risky correcting pedants but on Vietnam casualties I’m afraid you’ve fallen into one of the potholes. I’ll take a similar risk by quoting Wikipedia (which happens to accord with my memory):

    In total approximately 60,000 Australians—ground troops, air-force and naval personnel—served in Vietnam between 1962 and 1972. 521 died as a result of the war and over 3,000 were wounded.

      Beg you pardon Emily, I should have read more carefully and found David Salter’s name before I too fell in the pothole.

        Yeah but I think DS is talking about conscripts, not total casualties including regular soldiers. (Then again, I have a great record as a glass-house, pot-hole prone pedant.)

          202 (conscripts, not regulars plus conscripts) sounds right.
