Privacy thing of the past
it is no wonder that people are becoming increasingly cynical about the media, which i think is unfortunate.
in the u.S., democratic rep. rashida tlaib, in a private gathering of democrats, used a strong expletive to express how she feels about donald trump. Somebody uses (probably) a camera to record her. that person then puts it on the internet and the media puts it out on tv and print media.
i guess that means that, when prominent folks are in private meetings (and i emphasize private), they cannot express their feelings. i guess it also means that before any private meeting of prominent folks they are going to have to ask if anyone present is a member of the media and, if so, to leave. then people will have to be told to put away any recording medium.
However, in this modern world i am sure that somebody will try to record the private event to gain their 15 minutes of fame.
