‘Dingo’s Got My Baby’: Trial by Media | Retro Report | The New York Times That poor woman.
Trial by public is what had happened.
I'm sorry but who the f makes a joke about a baby's death? No matter the circumstances and how improbable it seems, the baby is still dead and it's deplorable that they could joke about such a thing
I've had a 1000kg bull killed on my property by dingo's. Within a week of seeing him, all that was left was his skin and scattered bones. They are dangerous animals, and I 100% believe Lindy was telling the truth.
People who need to hate and punish the innocent in order to feel superior are worse than the dingo, itself. They will vehemently, even violently reject any evidence, no matter how solid, if it contradicts what they have chosen to believe. These are the ones who choose to stay at Omelas.
Bless this poor baby. I hope she didn't suffer to much for to long. R. I.P little one
sadly, the dingo quote was a popular punchline before seinfeld—but totally spurred by the meryl streep movie. my parents made this joke a lot when i was a kid and i was super confused by it
The wonder forensics doctor in the case, Dr. James Cameron, is remembered for his purely godawful testimony in this and one other case. He was, IMHO, puffed up in his own conceit, so self-absorbed he thought he was infallible. Far too much damage done to people he was supposed to be treating fairly.
She was brave because she still had a whole family to care for. She couldn't cry all day. She was strong and composed and torn apart and sent to jail for it. As an American, I could totally see this happening here lmao. I didn't know about this. I am glad I know her story now.
This was a very shameful episode in Australian political, judicial and media history. It's not a lesson that's always remembered by some media here as well as it should be but it was certainly a lesson learned by politicians and the judiciary and has stopped us from sliding as far down the trial by media slope that you see in the US.
I'm Australian and was a child when this happened. But I knew a lot of ignorant people who vehemently believed she murdered the baby, some of whom still do today and still think it's ok to gossip among themselves about who they think is guilty or innocent in various consequent cases.

As a Queenslander who grew up in the 1980s, I am obviously very familiar with the nuances of the local accent, including the slight country twang and how people spoke at the time, which is a bit more harsh than people in the region would speak today. Meryl Streep nailed it. This was the first time I had ever seen a non-Australian actor pull off the accent in a convincing way. I'd go so far as to say she did better than an Australian from Melbourne or Sydney would have done had they been given the role. I had to take a double take when I heard her speak in the movie. I was theorising in my head that it must have been an Aussie actress who just looked a lot like Streep.

It really is a shame that people think it's ok to make a joke out of something so tragic. Even Hillary Clinton said it when she visited Australia as first lady. It made me wonder if she was unaware that the movie was based on a true story.
And Dingo was her name O !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I had no idea that line came from an actual event. I thought it was just an Australian saying. I remember hearing it on Frasier.
I got snatched by a wild wild dingo as a baby, unfortunately for the dingo i killed it with my cold stare
Now I know where this (https://youtu.be/Da4uqqxVQA8?t=4m28s) came from.
we all know she did it... but shame too on the Australian media who mocked not only the mother but also the humble dingo.
In the UK there’s been babies attacked by foxes which are much smaller why would it be unbelievable that a wild carnivores animal would eat a baby.
In my high school journalism class we watched "A Cry in the Dark" as a lesson in how NOT to report a tragedy.
10:48 - 11:40 = So true.
