The private life of media bosses.
If I had the money I would love to spend it on 'investigative journalism' and 'sting' operations into the private lives of the movers and shakers in our great & glorious media. Have none of them ever visited prostitutes or had extra marital affairs? Does any one remember the almost total absence of comment in the organs of News International when the great Rupert was getting his divorce? Does anybody actually care (except Mrs Rooney of course) what Wayne Rooney might have done with his sex life? Aforesaid movers & shakers might claim that they are not public figures & thus their private behaviour is not a matter of public interest. What rubbish. They wield more power than any politician & should be subject to rigorous & continuous scrutiny in the public interest that they profess to care so much about.
