...just mention the events of the last few days.
So, for those of you who don't know, the phones of a number of attractive 20something female celebrities were hacked, and nude photos they had taken of themselves were released onto the net and/or possibly sold to an entertainment focused, internet media outlet (you know the one).
The mainstream media, as you would expect, went beserk. Completely overboard, front page stories, headlines denouncing the hacker as "evil" and "depraved". ISIS were being considered for front page news, due to yet another mass killing, but the media apparently lost interest when it was discovered there were no nudes of Omar al-Baghdadi.
Anyway. If you were wondering, yes, this is the same media that devotes endless pages to "wardrobe malfunctions" and "side-boob" and "nipple slips", that pays paparazzi scum top dollar for blurry, long range pictures of celebrities in their bikinis or topless on holiday, and for barely disguised upskirt shots of them coming out of cars. This is the same media that took to entrapping Tulisa Contostavlos with a contrived drug bust. It's the same media that has no qualms about hacking the phones of politicians because they criticised their conduct, or of the families of those cruelly murdered.
That media apparently has decided this is an invasion of privacy and beyond the pale.
One would almost think they're just jealous, that a hacker managed to upstage them at their own game.
