Vale Michael Gordon. The sudden death on the weekend of veteran Age journalist Michael Gordon has been the subject of some beautiful tributes from his colleagues. Investigative reporter Nick McKenzie wrote of Gordon's influence on him and his role in the industry:

Beyond the senseless tragedy of a life ended too short, this wave of emotion also goes to the role Michael played as a steady moral beacon in a media and political industry increasingly swamped by partisan shrillness and social media noise.
