Bindi Irwin, who's the new face of an Australian tourism campaign.
Look, I know Bindi lost her dad, and of course that was a terrible tragedy. A tragedy that I probably would have chosen to address via private grief, but the Irwins did everything for the cameras, so I guess it’s not surprising that they keep popping up on television screens around the world. It's the way this is used to relentlessly promote Bindi that I've got a problem with.

When John Lennon died, Yoko didn't hit the talk show circuit spruiking Sean's singing career. It just seems tasteless.

And come on, a few interviews is understandable, but Bindi’s addressing the National Press Club in Washington, for goodness’ sake. Why don’t we go the whole hog and make her UN Secretary-General while we’re at it?
