UNCLE CONCEDES that perfectly-adequate journalist and 7.30 Report front-man Kerry O'Brien did right last night.

He made that creep Lindsay Tanner squirm by simply asking him to address his conscience for causing the breach of a Court suppression order, and so exposing Governor General Hapless Hollingworth to public ignominy.

Tanner, of course, asserted the public's right to know, and by his timetable. He didn't mention that he was also supporting the right of individuals to defame under privilege, before any evidence gets near the Court.
