As is ridiculously shown above, in the darkness happily runs a man, shouldering the privacy of the celebrities as a bomb to attract public’s attention, rushing to the news press, with another one from the news office welcoming his arrival. In the middle of the second picture stands a naked man, astonished by the huge amount of personal privacy pouring out of the mobile phone. There has been a heated discussion about these pictures recently in the newspaper. Simple as the pictures are, they do demonstrate certain thought-provoking social phenomenon.
The pictures tell us that the intrusion on other’s privacy and revealing it in the press are not only harmful but also detrimental . what’s more, our society fails to attach due attention to this problem. Firstly, some practitioners of low moral standards in the journalism, however, are tempted to focus on other’s privacy, especially some newsworthy celebrities’, such as love affairs, family relationship, medical history and its like, to attract more readers to buy their magazines or to increase their website’s PV(page view), and ultimately to lure more clients to pour money for advertisements. Secondly, The regulator and the authority turn a blind eye to this situation and make it the a real grey area. Furthermore, the public’s aesthetic taste of elegance is still far behind.
In my view, we are deeply convinced that everyone has the right to the privacy, the basic right which should be respected, protected and guaranteed by our laws and regulations under whatever circumstances. Princess Diana shows how bad things could end. It is also imperative that the public’s aesthetic taste be so enhanced and promoted that eventually build up a harmonious scene in which people can enjoy their live tranquilly and peacefully.
