CTV reported a story about a Canadian politician who attempted suicide, despite the unwritten rule that the media does not report on suicides. This story came from the same company that tries to bring attention to mental illness through #BellLetsTalk.
The article did not cite sources. The individual also did not come forward themselves, implying they’d be comfortable talking about it.
Is this newsworthy? Do you think the report is fair game, or needless “outing”?
