Calling Out The Sun UK Prince Harry has every right to be allowed a Private Life
So the US press through TMZ publish a set of images of the Royal Prince and blow the gaff on what Prince Harry has been up to in his private life. But let’s make it abundantly clear from the get go – it is nobody’s business what he does when he is either alone or out with friends. The story that is doing the viral rounds in the US media and the Internet is a blatant invasion of a young man’s privacy. Plus if anyone thinks he is unhappy with the press you bet he is, and rightly so the tardy exploitive way they use a famous name a public figure, no less than a distinguished member of the British Royal Family and the younger son of Prince Charles. This blatant and abhorant use of some stolen images of Prince Harry have been wafted in front of potential advertisers and the publishers have taken the advertisers for millions of US dollars on the promise that the ads would run of the same page as the illegal images of Prince Harry.
Not only is this an intrusion on the laws of privacy it is criminal too. But and here is the Fait accompli this act of criminality will get a pass in the States – meaning – no action as it does not involve anyone American so the nod and the wink to TMZ is that is OK then but don’t get them too mad!
As for the trashy UK press they are running scared and have not run the Prince Harry images as they know that Lord Justice Leveson has not yet released his report from the Leveson Inquiry into shenanigans of the UK Press down the years
Fast Forward 10 hours and The Sun have issued this statement of intent why they are releasing the Las Vegas pics of Prince Harry
Why The Sun has decided to print Prince Harry snaps
Managing Editor David Dinsmore explains thinking behind decision to publish notorious images
He said: “We’ve thought long and hard about this. The Sun is a responsible paper and it works closely with the Royal family. We take heed of their wishes.
“We’re also big fans of Prince Harry, he does a huge amount of work for this country and for the military and for the image of both of those institutions.
“We are not against him letting his hair down once in a while. For us this is about the freedom of the Press.
“This is about the ludicrous situation where a picture can be seen by hundreds of millions of people around the world on the internet, but can’t be seen in the nation’s favourite paper read by 8 million people every day.” – Attribution to TheSun.Co.Uk
What a tawdry statement which translates into we have 8 million daily readers and we can secure millions of pounds in advertising revenue if we run with the Prince Harry images! It is as usual all about the money the freedom of the Press BS is just that plain BS!
Maybe now is the tine for The Sun CEO Rupert Murdoch to have a rethink bring back Rebekah Brooks to oversee an operation by Sun minions to hack the mobile phone of Prince Harry! Then of course they will be breaking the law but the upside is they will know some of what goes on in the private life of the youngest son of Prince Charles!
