Avatar Imagegexpert says: 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.Avatar Imagegexpert says: Sorry guys. I mean no *child's privacy should be invaded...*Avatar Imagewandmastercalum says: Damn right! The world needs to learn to back-off celebrities. Internet and celeb gossip has made everyone so nosey these days!Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: The editors of those publications should be throttled! Have you heard what they did to Sienna Miller? Absolutely outrageous! Avatar Imagechikitcorpuzvesterbaek says: 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.Avatar Imagekyrstalkris says: *sigh* Poor Jo. :/Avatar ImageBeazle says: Here is Jo's full witness statement- http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/interactive/2011/nov/24/jk-rowling-witness-statement-leveson-inquiryAvatar Imageroonwit says: The witness statement, transcript, and video is on the inquiry web site at http://www.levesoninquiry.org.uk/hearing/2011-11-24pm/ (video from about 58:20, transcript from page 35 line 11)Avatar Imagegexpert says: @chikitcorpuzvesterbaek Exactly, this is Rita Skeeter effect we have here.Avatar ImageG.Weasley says: 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.Avatar Imageoriondruid says: 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.Avatar Imageoriondruid says: Vile reptiles, all of the gutter press.

I really feel for Jo and all the others, those people really deserve to be locked up or fined heavilyAvatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: Poor jo and her family and evreyone in this case!Avatar ImageWaitForPete says: 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.Avatar ImageCatherine says: I started following this last night. I read Jo's lengthy statement! Not only poor Jo, poor Neil, David, Kenzie & Jess as well!!!! Go Jo for fighting this!!!Avatar ImageArchdude says: Jo does not deserve this, nor does any celebrity.Avatar ImageHermonie says: This is sooooooo sad and depressing!!!!!!Avatar ImageNikki lovegoode says: What happened? i log on leaky and all of the sudden jo is getting sued or something?!!
