The Tragedy of Sir Rudolf Bing

August 14, 1988

Your story is headed: "An Operatic Decline." I call it "A Journalistic Decline"--a respected newspaper stooping to the level of a scurrilous scandal sheet. Sir Rudolf's illness and mental decline are a personal tragedy, but there is nothing "ignoble" about it. This is not investigative reporting, of which The Times has given us many brilliant and beneficial examples, but snooping of the lowest kind. Ignoble, indeed!
