Media’s ministerial pile-on prompts reflection

From Mediawatch, 9:06 am on 16 September 2018

The media seized on Clare Curran’s stumbles and many pundits wrote off her ministerial career before she pulled the plug last week. She cited "intolerable pressure" and said her mistakes were "greatly magnified." 

Clare Curran at Parliament on 11 September told media she had assured the prime minister she would archive emails from her Gmail account.
