In The Washington Post, Brad Hirschfield has weighed in on tragedy that has become an international story.
‘‘Why do we care about the death of an unknown nurse, especially one so far away? Why should we care about this story? We care because we love stories connected to celebrities. We care because we love the whiff of a morality play, whether it is about the “wicked radio people” who some will surely blame for the death of an innocent young woman, or those who will claim that she was anything but innocent, taking her own life because of the “shame and guilt that grew out of her betrayal of a patient’s privacy” – and a royal patient no less!’’
