Murdoch media has a documented history of hacking the private lives of people it believes it can profit from. It’s closure of The News of the World, employees jailed, and Murdoch being grilled in the UK are proof that the Murdochs have maintained their unethical practices. It seems the organization has maintained hacking as a tool by which it gathers information to help those like Linda Reynolds. It’s hard to imagine it was Linda Reynolds who provided the information that was published in the Australian?
The Weekend Australian referred to the former political staffer’s diary contents in an interview with her ex-boss Senator Linda Reynolds on Saturday.
Responding to the article, Ms Higgins said it was the third time The Australian had published “private images, texts and WhatsApps from my phone”.
