    and go to great lengths to protect it.  Also the media in GB does not enjoy the same protections enjoyed by US media which can have a dampening effect on news coverage

    •  Tell that to the newspaper (4+ / 0-)

      that published pictures of Kate's boobs :)

      The UK press is respectful of the privacy of the Royal Family only up to a point.

      There are two issues. The first is that the UK press is part of the establishment, and tries not to rock the boat too much .... They are owned by coporations, just like in the US.

      Secondly ... Royal news sells papers, and any publication making a habit of intruding on their privacy will soon find its access restricted.

      They try to avoid that where possible.

      I hope that the quality of debate will improve,
      but I fear we will remain Democrats.

      DJ, per the story I read earlier. Not sure how, if at all, that is under similar regulations to the UK press.

      Horrible results, whatever the basis.
