The invasion of privacy by the mass media

(上記TOPIC、英語で意見を論理的に述べる技術とトレーニング第7章より引用)

Essay

 I think the mass media invades many people’s privacy for the two reasons.
 The first reason is that the mass media makes public the information of crime victims. I think this is so wrong because if their information is made public, it causes many inconveniences to their family. Furthermore, nobody wants people to know that they or their family are victimized in a crime. Moreover it is unreasonable to protect juvenile criminal’s information although victims’ names and photos are made public. Therefore the mass media totally invades crime victims’ privacy.
 The second reason is that the mass media reports on famous people’s private lives. I think this is so wrong because it is wrong to intervene in people’s private lives no matter who they are unless they commit a crime since it is right and necessary to scrutinize the private lives of criminals. Moreover persistent paparazzi cause many famous people to suffer from mental illnesses. Therefore the mass media completely invades famous people’s privacy.
 As I mentioned, for the aforesaid two reasons, the mass media totally invades people’s privacy.
