What about Privacy?

Liberals are willing to do anything to protect the right to "privacy" when it comes to made-up rights like abortion.

But what about Whittington's right to privacy? Doesn't he have a right not to have the accident that happened to him spread over all the papers and talked about endlessly on all the news channels?

I am referring, of course, to Vice-President Cheney accidentally shooting his friend while the two were hunting last weekend.

Everywhere I go it seems like the MSM is freaking out because the VP didn't "disclose" what happened immediately.

Why? Was the matter one of National Importance? Of National Security?

I would have preferred they press Bill Clinton over the fact that he didn't take Osama bin Laden when he had a beautiful chance.

And what about Teddy Kennedy (Or as Ann Coulter calls him "Drunkennedy") driving a girl he was having an affair with into a river and leaving her to drown, while he went home?

The people who needed to know where informed when the accident happened: Whittington's family, local authorities, etc. The MSM has no right to know every thing that happens. Should we be informed if the VP doesn't eat all his vegetables? What if he has the flu? What if someone cooking at his home cuts her hand? Should we have to know that too?

The MSM is going full-speed with the idea that EVERYONE ought to have been informed. Rubbish. The people who needed to know knew.

Whittington has a right to privacy, doesn't he? Of course, the MSM only believes in that when it comes to Democrats.
