Read All About It

How do you decide what is in the public interest to report in the media?

Where do you draw the line between public and private?

Can you?

Should you?

Let's imagine, for example, that a Premiership manager was seen entering a brothel, and exiting an hour later, subsequently admitting he had been with prostitutes.

Do we need to know that?

Is it just prurient curiosity?

Or is it behaviour that brings the game into disrepute?

Does it undermine your confidence in him as a man?

I guess we'll just have to watch and wait for this one to unravel.
