I'm not sure who Eric Alterman is blaming for the 'death of privacy.' The two cases he cites are self-inflicted, as he notes, but as for the media feeling they should be immune to any of the kind of intrusion into the personal lives of celebrities and politicians they themselves undertake - poop on that. While it is wrong to hold every journalist accountable for the sins of their colleagues, as a profession the media long ago gave up their right to privacy.
