cringe on his behalf

A reporter gives away information he should keep.

"His editor in chief cringed on his behalf, that the hack should so carelessly give away such a tip."

on his behalf gives me pause here, (as it often times does)

Son rédacteur en chef a eu une grimace, il était gêné de voir ce journaleux lâcher aussi imprudemment une info aussi sensible.
