Twitter lays blame in nurse's death after royal baby prank call
The Duchess of Cambridge was in hospital with acute morning sickness, when Australia radio DJs prank-called the hospital by posing as the queen and asking for Kate. The nurse who transferred the call was later found dead. The hospital did not confirm it was suicide. Who is to blame for her death?
- On Twitter and Facebook, it's not clear who is at fault for the death of this woman, Jacintha Saldanha. The King Edward VII Hospital in London has not confirmed it was a suicide, but the lack of exact details of her death haven't stopped people from debating online who is mostly to blame.
> Is it the DJs' fault for making the prank phone call, which brought much attention and ridicule?
> Is it the media's fault for its widespread coverage of the royal baby news and the prank call?
