David Cohen on Privacy kerfuffle

David Cohen, in the free part of the NBR site has a very good post on the utter hypocrisy of the media and Labour.

Interesting, though, isn’t it, that some of the same news outlets allowing the most space and airtime for the thunderous moral outrage over these women’s supposed loss of privacy appear to be the same ones who apparently thought nothing of reproducing copious extracts from the pilfered private correspondence of former National leader Don Brash.

Or are the media rules somehow different for a minister releasing legitimately obtained personal information than they are for reporters dining out for months on illegally obtained personal information?
