    Not sure where I fall on this one. I'm no fan of the pap, but as a member of the media, I could see problems arising from laws like this.

    Skipping the story. I'd rather comment on how Garner is hot but has that Giraffe neck.

    You know goddamned well that both of those dizzy broads crack open the People magazine whenever they get their hands on one and go straight for the page of paparazzi pics of celebrity kids with idiotic, pretentious names like Jet and Cheyenne... all dressed up in stupid attention-whoring cutesy clothes with like purple mohawks and designer hipster glasses.

    You know they do... because that dumb shit is like crack cocaine to dizzy bitches like Halle Berry and Jennifer Garner. Fing hypocrites.

    if people stop buying those shit magazines and stop clicking on those dumb sites, there will be no demand for celebrity photos.

    So would this bill include movie and TV crews getting a shot of someone else's kid when filming on a public street?

    Makes sense, that way they can be in control of the photos themselves and shop them to the tabloids, cutting out the middlemen.

    Problem is, even if lil' Nahla was entitled to privacy before, you just made her a public figure, by talking about her at a fucking political event. She is LITERALLY news now. You couldn't possibly have shot your own argument down more completely than this.

    Though I'm sure she made her a public figure long ago.

    Private and public figures have different privacy protections from the media, in the US. I would have more sympathy for this request, if it came from people truly determined to keep their children's names, pictures and personal information out of the media from day zero. Then I think a case could be made that they deserve the same protection private individuals get (even that doesn't involve the "criminalization" of taking a picture in public, btw. - violation of privacy is a civil matter, not criminal).

    Plenty of celebs don't have this problem. With the kind of
    money they have they can avoid crowds and cameras if they
    really want to. Is this really a problem that needs legislation?
    I think not.

    There may have been a time when photographing or bringing up public figures kids was frowned upon. (wasn't there?)

    Now, I guess, the once lowly practice is accepted. And profitable.


    No reason to hound the kids.

    When they build that wall along the Mexico/America border, we need that wall to turn north when it gets to the California/Arizona border and just continue till all of Cali is separated from the rest of reality.

    You're right that it's reprehensible and pointless. But it's a First Amendment right nonetheless for the media to present any news about public figures in any way they see fit.

    Even if Cali tries to stop them, the federal judiciary will step in and re-assert this First Amendment protection. There's ample precedent for it. Not even the almighty "but the children" argument will work on this one.

    Yup. I'd be all for these celeb broads making public appeals to stop buying photos of their kids, but making a law of it is bullshit.

    I'd prefer it if Jennifer Garner and Halle Berry would just get naked and make a lesbian porn together and release that. I know I'd watch that over jerking off to pictures of their stupid kids.

    The answer to their horrible first world problem is obvious...

    Get fat, Get a Moe Howard haircut, stop acting, and take a job bagging groceries.

    Do that, and I guarantee you the paparazzi won't give a flying fuck about your kids.

    Then they don't listen. The "why, there outta be a law!" attitude is bullshit. If the photogs want to be dicks, they can be dicks.
