HYPOCRITE: Rupert Murdoch tweets support of Prince Harry over the nude pictures of him cavorting in a Las Vegas hotel suite. Rupert Murdoch coming to Prince Harry’s defense shouldn’t be taken at face value, since this comes after his News International publishing division’s The Sun tabloid prints the pictures of the naked prince.

Of course, Rupert Murdoch would have the general public believe he really cares about Prince Harry, all the while his paper has broken with other British papers’ agreement not to publish the pictures out of respect for the monarchy.

It comes after Friday’s edition of The Sun tabloid newspaper, owned by Murdoch’s News International publishing division, printed the grainy, cell phone snaps of the 27-year-old prince larking about with an unnamed woman in his hotel suite in Vegas.

More than 850 complaints have been made to the press watchdog the Press Complaints Commission about The Sun’s decision to break ranks with the British media and be the only one to publish the pictures.

Nearly all the complaints are about invasion of privacy and are to be investigated in due course. The Independent reported that Murdoch himself was involved personally in the decision to print the pictures which The Sun’s managing editor David Dinsmore told the media was a matter of principle concerning press freedom.
