Is There Anything Lower Than A French Journo?

#1
Although not a huge fan of The Late Princess of Wales the behaviour of these Jounalists/photographers/scum was totally lacking in dignity, compassion or morals. I only hope that someone other than a Journalist arrives at the scene of their childrens car crash. Perhaps though the 'Lower Than A Snakes Arrse' award here goes to the French Courts who found that the Journos did indeed break the law by invading privacy plus 'a breach of respect to a human being' by opening the door of the crashed car to get a better photo of Dodi and Dianna but not rendering any attempt at assistance. Found guilty and a 1 Euro fine. Gee there's a deterrent.

Three French photographers have each been fined a symbolic €1 by France's appeals court for taking pictures of Princess Diana and her boyfriend Dodi Al-Fayed on the night they were killed in a Paris car crash in 1997, justice officials have said.
Jacques Langevin, Fabrice Chassery and Christian Martinez were cleared of breach of privacy charges in court rulings in 2003 and 2004, but Dodi's father Egyptian millionaire Mohamed Al-Fayed took the case to France's high court of appeal, the Cour de Cassation.
The Cour de Cassation quashed the acquittal and referred the charges back to the appeals court, which last Friday ruled that the photographers had indeed broken the law and issued the symbolic fine, the officials said.

The three took pictures of the couple as they left the Ritz hotel in central Paris on the night of August 31, and a few minutes later at the scene of the crash in the Alma underpass.
The appeals court also ordered the photographers to pay for the publication of its ruling in three "national or international newspapers chosen by the civil plaintiff," Mohammed Al-Fayed.
According to the court, both series of pictures — outside the hotel and at the crash scene — were a breach of France's strict rules on privacy.
"The photographs (at the hotel) were taken with Dodi Al-Fayed inside the vehicle, a location where access is forbiddden without permission of the occupant and which therefore comes under the definition of a private place," the court found.
Concerning the second series at the crash scene, the court said that the "car's involvement in an accident and the consequent opening of a door, exposing a seriously injured person involuntarily to outside view, in no way diminishes (the car's) quality as a private place.
"By showing Dodi Al-Fayed mortally injured, bloody, his body broken by the shock of the accident, the photographers unquestionably committed a breach of the respect due to a human being and as a result violated the personal privacy of the individual concerned," the court said.
There was no immediate reaction from Mohammed Al-Fayed, who has blamed paparazzi photographers for hounding his son and Princess Diana to their deaths.
A French judicial enquiry found that the cause of the accident was the excessive speed at which the couple's Mercedes limousine was being driven, as well as the alcohol and prescription drugs found in the bloodstream of Henri Paul, the chauffeur who also died in the crash.
But a British police enquiry was set up two years ago to look into claims — supported by Al-Fayed — that the deaths were not an accident but the result a plot, possibly within the British establishment.

Read a report back then about a ferry boat in Pakistan sinking with the loss of all 500 passengers and crew.
But, it was ruled not a tragedy as there was no Princess on board.

Both manipulated the press to their advantage when it suited them. 'Live by the press, die by the press'. In support of OldRedCap, Mother Teresa died at about the same time. Now there was a real saint; she did considerably more for humanity than poke around a minefield for some self-publicity. She didn't get an expensive, defective fountain dedicated to her, did she.

Yes - Piers Morgan

But then I am not sure he can be classed as a Journalist - more of a self important self seeking *. But then quite a few journos seem to fit into that category.

Possibly Mother terasa was lower than a french jurno.

and more:

"MT was not a friend of the poor. She was a friend of poverty. She said that suffering was a gift from God. She spent her life opposing the only known cure for poverty, which is the empowerment of women and the emancipation of them from a livestock version of compulsory reproduction. And she was a friend to the worst of the rich, taking misappropriated money from the atrocious Duvalier family in Haiti (whose rule she praised in return) and from Charles Keating of the Lincoln Savings and Loan. Where did that money, and all the other donations, go? The primitive hospice in Calcutta was as run down when she died as it always had been—she preferred California clinics when she got sick herself—and her order always refused to publish any audit. But we have her own claim that she opened 500 convents in more than a hundred countries, all bearing the name of her own order. Excuse me, but this is modesty and humility?"

That justifies the fact that the very last thing Diana saw were probably close proximity camera flashes from people that possibly could have saved her?

Imagine she was your daughter laying there twitching as she died, how would you feel afterwards?
