Where Rupert Murdoch leads, we should follow

Apparently Rupert Murdoch was behind The Sun publishing pictures of naked Prince Harry:

In a message to a user who congratulated him on The Sun's challenge to the royal family, Murdoch said he "needed to demonstrate (that there is) no such thing as free press in UK."
Yes, because clearly the UK censors have prevented him from publishing whatever he... oh, wait.

Still, I fully endorse his decision to publish those pictures - or, indeed, naked pictures of any celebrity. The only caveat I would place on this is that any picture of a naked celebrity in The Sun or any other UK newspaper should be accompanied by a recent (no more than 1 week old) full frontal photo of a naked member of the newspaper's ownership or editorial team, selected via random ballot by the Press Complaints Commission.
