Time for 60 Minutes on 60 Minutes?

I just read a news reporting the 60 minutes, a journalism sensationalism TV programme is being investigated for paying the incest pair.
Police are investigating Channel Nine over its alleged payment for interviews with a father and daughter convicted of incest.

Channel Nine's 60 Minutes program aired a story on Sunday that sparked a national scandal after John Deaves, 61, and his daughter, Jennifer Deaves, 39, spoke of their love for each other, which yielded two children.

The pair were convicted in the South Australian District Court in Mount Gambier last month of two counts each of incest relating to the conception of their daughter, Celeste, born last year, and another baby who died in 2001, a few days after birth, from a congenital heart defect.

Maybe it's time for 60 Minutes to rip into 60 Minutes itself?

Hello, qazi, I appreciate that you took time to comment on my blog, but what was the purpose of your comment? I am confused. Simply listing Bible verses doesn't answer any questions especially when I didn't ask any. Would you care to explain what you were trying to say?

It's 'sensationalist', not 'sensationism TV programme'. Anyways, what was the ruling? What happened to them as a result of their crime?
