The knuckleheads (tm John Key) in the parliamentary press gallery are concerned about their privacy:
Parliamentary press gallery raises concerns over swipe card data
Representatives from the parliamentary press gallery have raised concerns with Speaker David Carter over Parliamentary Service releasing the swipe card information of a political reporter.
Press gallery chairwoman Jessica Mutch said the press gallery was worried that journalists could be monitored while working in Parliament.
“We can’t operate in an environment where our every move is tracked and that information is made public – that would make our job around the precinct difficult,” she said.
…Ms Mutch said they were hoping for a formal agreement from Mr Carter to protect press gallery journalists.
Surely if knuckleheads have nothing to hide, they have nothing to fear?
Well if it’s good enough for knuckleheads, surely it’s good enough for the rest of us too. Ladies and gentlemen of the media – how about doing a better job about raising the alarm about the government’s GCSB spying bill, its sell out to America, and its attacks on our privacy? Just a thought.
