The Sunday Star Times has given artist Sam Mahon’s stupid game unnecessary publicity.
Bloggers have added to that by linking. I’m not.
I’m generally in favour of a pretty liberal interpretation of what it is appropriate for media to cover. But a game that is based on killing the PM is not.
Many politicians who have been in the spotlight get threats. Most are not serious and the vast majority are from people with psychiatric conditions that are unlikely to follow through.
Notwithstanding that, I think it is better for media to if there is any doubt just to ignore stuff like that.
