I'm trying to understand where the line is.
I think that *is* the line. And if they dont think the story is worthwhile that way -- that is you can't run it/make it interesting *without* including information that will likely hurt someone in a way that has little to do with the actual story -- then you dont run it. Its a fucking golf club. I know that millions and millions of dollars are spent on golf clubs, but how much money/fraud are we talking here? What was the total laid out by the investors? This isn't national security, or comparable to someone like Madoff, his used his status as a Jew to rip people off for hundreds of millions. If Dr V had targeted the transgender community for investment, that would be a different issue.
Was the story about Paul Newman's alibi important enough for Sally Field to publish the details about the abortion?
