Sydney morning herald media file

Press Council finds The Sydney Morning Herald in breach of privacy, Australian TV schedules a few blasts from the past, NSW wins or loses (depending on who you ask), and other media tidbits of the day.

SMH murder story breached privacy. Sydney Morning Herald story about a man fatally stabbed in Sydney unreasonably breached his family's privacy and caused distress, the Australian Press Council has ruled. The article reported on a court hearing about Brian Liston's murder in December 2015, including the details of how he was killed, which were revealed in court. Online, the story had a photo of Liston with his children taken from a funeral booklet which requested those at the funeral not cooperate with the media and respect the family's privacy.
