Fair enough, seems it doesn't apply to the actress. Somebody had to have whispered to the newspaper for it to contact the theatre's ED. Something not considered worthy of a formal complaint then developed into a full-blown assassination attempt.
She complained internally and has stated she was simply hoping for an apology.

This was between the paper and it’s sick quest to get the scoop and Rush.

She voiced her issues off the record and said she didn't want to make a formal complaint.

Yes, the newspaper acted out of malice (as was found against Fairfax with Chris Gayle). By their own admission, they were riding the coattails of the #metoo movement that was knocking down various male celebrities.

Australian of The Year - Geoffrey Rush

Who advises Gillard??
Seriously, is she this out of touch with the public?

No Geoffrey, these are not significant issues for the average person out there. They are for the elitist left of which you are a member of - but everybody else is too busy trying to make ends meet at the moment.

Every time this bloke speaks on national matters for the next 12 months will just be another nail in the coffin for Labor.
Climate change is a significant issue for the majority of lucid Australians.

Rush didn't want the trial either but he was obligated to defend himself.

People need to stop telling unverifiable stories to newspapers.
Most sexual assault cases come down to victim v defendant, ie. Her word against his. Therefore all risk being unverifiable.

Sexual assault is difficult to prove unless it has been filmed or there are eye witnesses.

All the more reason for restraint when going to print.

Not only The Daily Telegraph, but the likes of Andrew Blot and the confirmed bachelor could well take note of the importance of journalistic rigour. Then again, one is a pseudo journalist and the other a third rate entertainer, so poorly researched, error ridden material coloured by personal attacks is what we've come to expect.

The link between the theatre hierachy & the paper? The self interest of the insider who is that leak, the #metoo pile on.
