Re: [Serious] Nurse who transferred prank call commits suicide

The station has a history of inappropriate behaviour with few repercussions.

quote:
Kyle Sandilands, a shock jock on 2Day FM, sparked a huge public backlash following a lie-detector stunt in which a 14-year-old girl revealed she had been raped. Sandilands was dropped as a judge on Australian Idol and blasted by the then prime minister, Kevin Rudd, for his role in the episode.
quote:
Sandilands had previously gained notoriety for drinking breast milk and launching a competition to find Sydney's smallest penis. He said he was disappointed at the decision to drop him from Australian Idol.

In April this year, Sandilands was also criticised for referring to a Pakistani girl born with additional limbs as "spider baby".
And finally,

quote:
The DJ also provoked fury in November last year, after he launched a verbal attack on a female journalist, Alison Stephenson, who had reported on the low ratings of a TV show he and O'Neil presented.

"Some fat slag on news.com.au has already branded it a disaster," he said. "You can tell by reading the article that she just hates us and has always hated us. What a fat, bitter thing you are. You're deputy editor of an online thing. You've got a nothing job anyway. You're a piece of shit. This low thing, Alison Stephenson, deputy editor of news.com.au online. You're supposed to be impartial, you little troll."

He added: "You're a bullshit artist, girl. You should be fired from your job. Your hair's very '90s. And your blouse. You haven't got that much titty to be having that low cut a blouse. Watch your mouth or I'll hunt you down."

His remarks led sponsors including the car company Holden to withdraw their sponsorship of the show.

I didn't follow much of this at all, but from the little i heard and saw on cbc it was a prank. Period.

The real culprits ragging on this nurse *after* the *prank* were:
a) the hospital
b) some of the Media
c) Royal family.
d) Royal family followers

It was a prank. Sh*t happens. But from what little I saw the above 4 came down on her.

The station in question didn't come down on her like the above 4. It's the anal 4 above who couldn't stand their hospital being the butt of a prank and the UK media and the royal/royal-watchers.

In effect guess we can say the above 4 bullied her and mocked her to death.

You made a mistake there by ending with a period as you forgot 'broadcast to the entire world'. This poor woman's caring nature was exploited for the entire world to laugh at her.

It's not even a little bit funny and it would please me if the DJ's involved received enough of a backlash for their horrible behaviour to encourage them to suicide. I heard the 'prank' on the news before this woman's suicide and I thought it was just as classless as I do now.
