Last Tuesday The Australian published a formal apology to George Newhouse from Caroline Overington and expressed its own regret. It neglected to apologise to its readers for the unedifying manner in which it allowed a journalist to 'report' the political contest in the seat of Wentworth.
I have to wonder why Ms. Overington has not been sacked by the newspaper. She surely deserves summary dismissal for inserting herself in the political process rather than simply reporting the election campaign.
