Helen Moorhouse: Haven't we had our bellyful of this sort of humiliation radio?

IF Steve Irwin were still alive, he'd have had an easy day's crocodile hunting yesterday. All he'd have had to do was follow the tracks of their tears as 'heartbroken' 2DayFM presenters Mel Greig and Michael Christian went on TV to show their remorseful faces to the world following the death of nurse Jacintha Saldanha.

Contrary to the baying hordes who say that the presenters have "blood on their hands", I don't agree that the pair were directly responsible for the nurse's apparent suicide.

To say so is entirely unreasonable. What is certain, however, is that there was no need for it to happen.
