      Actually Drew Peterson is not entitled to privacy regarding his engagement … it was his publicist that told the media he was engaged.

      If he never came forward, no one would have known or cared. It would appear that it is Peterson who is the media whore in this case.

      I guess we also need to overlook that little tidbit that the guy is still married while now engaged. Technicality I guess.

      I am just so sorry that the children have to go thru this. Where’s mommy … and who the heel is this little girl that we are supposed to now call mom? Gee Daddy, how long is she going to last?

      Cindy & George Anthony certainly had no problem going on the media when it suited them. Or when it came to spreading disinformation regarding the case and covering for their daughter, Casey.

      It is too bad that they did not fell the same loyalty for their grand daughter Caylee.

      The Anthony’s could have been two of the most sympathetic characters in American history. Two loving grand parents devastated by the loss of Caylee and the apparent soon to be off to prison of their daughter.

      Instead they made a concerted effort thru the media and to LE to spread “conflicting statements”.

      You live by the sword and you die by that same sword.

      Their privacy is presently being respected; however, they made their own bed … now we all just wonder where the sheets and pillow cases are.

      Look at the Hollywood and TV types … their only claim to being ‘newsworthy’ is the publicity that they get. And unfortunately, our society seems to be going more and more down that path.

      I agree with Dana to a point.

      I believe that people have the right to privacy, but they have to exercise that right. Certainly, people like the Anthony’s use the media as a means to further their own personal agenda and thus lose their right to privacy. What a contrast they are to the Ramseys!

      But, I will never forget the invasion on a young mother in Orlando who was driven to take her own life which resulted in a dead-end to any chance of finding her baby or finding answers as to what happened to him. In my opinion, THIS was an invasion, a rush to judgment exercised by the media in a fruitless search for justice.

      It is interesting when they only want privacy when it behooves them. You could not separate Cindy Anthony an a camera at the outset.

      Now that people want answers and not misrepresenting statements of Casey propaganda … its about their privacy.

      Are they allowed to grieve in peace, no question. From what it appears they have been. However, when they come out and want to talk continued trash about a nanny, they are entitled to no privacy.
