The manner which media blow informations out of proportion had always been under addressed. No child’s privacy should not be invaded whether their parent is famous or not.

Damn right! The world needs to learn to back-off celebrities. Internet and celeb gossip has made everyone so nosey these days!

The editors of those publications should be throttled! Have you heard what they did to Sienna Miller? Absolutely outrageous!

No wonder Jo created Rita Skeeter. And to involve Jo’s kids is really low. If we penalize pedophiles and stalkers, so should these scum who spread lies about people just because they’re famous.

This is the downside of being rich and famous, I sincerely hope they get the bastard who did this. She’s giving to charities, creating her own clinic to help people and instead what she gets is lack of privacy and invasion of privacy.

Shame on them.

Vile reptiles, all of the gutter press. Poor Jo and her family, just because a person has become rich and famous does not automatically make them fair game for intrusive journalism. I hope that this enquiry will finally result in a Press Complaints Commision that has real teeth, rather than the mutual protection society for unscrupulous so-called journalists that exists at present.

every person values their privacy and doesn’t want it violated so when it’s violated for the world to see, how much more upsetting can it be. I really feel for Jo and all the others, those people really deserve to be locked up or fined heavily

The gutter press only behave like this so people will buy their rags, which are also filled with hateful bile about whatever minority they decide to blame the world’s problems on that week. Though, strangely, they never seem to pick on the people with all the money and power.
