Dr Mumbo It was ‘a website’ wot done it April 16, 2012 10:50 4 Dr Mumbo notes that The Australian currently rather coyly refers to the Logie leak as having been via “a website”. He’s sure there’s a very good reason why the title has not named its News Limited stablemate The Herald Sun as the guilty party. topics Herald Sun, journalism, Logies, The Australian Share Tweet Share Comments: 4 The what? 16 Apr 12 Can The Logies honestly be taken seriously…? Reply Nic Christensen 16 Apr 12 Hi Tim, There is a reason why the paper wasn’t named that’s because its AAP wire copy and the wire reporter didn’t include the name of “the website”. You’ll note that the SMH has run the same identical story ad did also not name the Herald Sun. See – http://news.smh.com.au/breakin.....1x21s.html Multiple other websites have also run this AAP version. Our follow ups (including the one published in the print edition paper) have included the Herald Sun by name. See for example: http://www.theaustralian.com.a.....6327796679 Regards, Nic Christensen Media Writer – The Australian Reply Stephen Brook 16 Apr 12 Oh Tim, Read page three of The Australian today. You will see the phrase “prematurely revealed by the Herald Sun website in the hour before the announcement” in good ol’ black and white.
