Tore Tønne (5 March 1948 – 20 December 2002) was the Norwegian Minister of Health and Social Affairs (responsible for social affairs) from 2000 to 2001 in Jens Stoltenberg's first cabinet. Tønne committed suicide after newspaper writings about investigations over alleged economic improprieties committed after the conclusion of his term in the Norwegian cabinet. This incident led to a debate about media responsibility and individual rights in Norway.
Ivar Hippe wrote a book about him entitled Mektig og avmektig: Tore Tønne, media og maktspillet bak kulissene.
