Personally, I feel that they are sometimes too intrusive and do not allow celbrities to have any privacy. I am particularly outraged with the recent suicide attempt made by NSW Opposition Leader John Brogden. I do not condone his actions but I think the media, particularly the Daily Telegraph, were in the wrong. They did not forgive his actions, but rather kept criticsing Mr Brogden. This led him to attempt to commit suicide.
This shows the power of the media and the disatrous effect they can have on people's lives. Also, I feel many sportspeople are criticised for actions that are not at all related to sport. i was disgusted with the way the media handled the Wayne Carey/Glen Archer incident a couple of years ago.
Anyway, what are your thought on the media ? Too intrusive or just doing their job ?
