This thread is inspired by Crazy_Ivan. Well, here goes: Pretend you are a reporter for a major daily newspaper. You have been assigned to write a story about a magazine publisher's pending divorce from his wife--who is also his business partner--and how it will affect his $200 million media "empire" of popular publications. While you are checking into the story, you learn that he is leaving his wife for a man he has been having an affair with for several years. You have discovered this info on your own. The publisher has not inssued any public statements about his sexuality. He has only announced that he has filed for divorce and is seeking full control of the media company, which has public stock holders. Are you going to include this info in your news story and "out" this man? Who should decide whether this man's sexual preference (or anyone else's for that matter) should be made public? Is this information newsworthy? Why?
