Woman's Day in hot water after breaching broadcaster Chrissie Swan's privacy. ABC unveils another addition to its podcast offerings. The problem with Love Island. From the Crikey bunker, the biggest issues in media today.
Pap pics breach privacy. Woman's Day breached radio host Chrissie Swan's children's privacy and caused substantial distress by publishing photos of them in March last year under the headline, "It's McHappy day!". Swan complained to the Australian Press Council about the article, published with three pictures, about Swan and her three children being photographed going to McDonald's. Swan complained about the article, saying her children weren't in the public eye, which Woman's Day disputed. It told the council that Swan had talked about her kids in her memoir, had talked about them in the media and "had not contacted it at an earlier stage to seek a general agreement to not publish photographs of her children", the council adjudication said.
