For the vast majority of the year there has been a story which has held the British public captivated… that is the story of phone hacking undertaken by The News of The World.
Now, there have been many terrible foreign problems such as violent revolutions in the Middle East and tragic natural disasters in and around Asia in the news. However it has been the malpractice of The News of the World, especially relating to the chilling and sickening tampering of the voice mails of murdered teenager Amanda Jane ?Milly? Dowler that has really drawn my attention.
The thought of a poor girls family having their hopes tinkered with for the sake of a story to sell in what I can only describe as a rag, is nauseating.
I am all for freedom of press and freedom of speech, but we must ask ourselves, is it morally right to invade the privacy of celebrities and people who have found themselves somehow in the public eye?
Sure genuine public interest journalism should be upheld by any means but I find it hugely indicative of a company of senseless no-moral buffoons when for titillation?s sake, peoples personal matters are lampooned in the public forum.
Ask yourselves who among us would be happy if we where chased down streets at night and if we had our last desperate pleas to our missing child dissected by hounds in search for a new quarry?
No one that?s who ! So why on earth should these cavalier journalists be any different ? I think it about time we shut these leeches up for good and hopefully then we can cure the cancer that has riddled a once great industry.
