The Telegraph seems to have taken Hugh Grant's calls for press regulation far more personally than some other papers.
Yesterday The Telegraph's Mandrake column ran an article about Hugh Grant which was utterly lacking in any kind of news or public interest. Today Mandrake is again concerning itself with the Hollywood actor and Hacked Off campaigner:
"Hugh Grant was so angered by the tabloids' alleged intrusion into his private life that he became a campaigner for state regulation of the press. On Saturday, however, the foppish actor used a social-networking website to disclose that Tinglan Hong, the mother of his daughter, Tabitha, had given birth to their second child.
"Am thrilled my daughter now has a brother," he announced to his 77,000 followers on Twitter.
The Telegraph is being deliberately misleading here - and more than a little disingenuous - in suggesting some kind of hypocrisy on the part of Grant. Somebody choosing to share personal details on their own Twitter account is very different to somebody having no choice what personal details are shared by the media.
But more importantly, Mandrake has chosen to carefully edit Grant's tweets and ignore his claim that he was only sharing this personal information on Twitter because of questions from the media:
"Grant's announcement is...conveniently timed. On Monday, he is due at the gala screening of Cloud Atlas, the first film in which he has appeared on screen for three years."
Mandrake may have decided to ignore this Tweet from Grant which explained the timing:
