The publication of recordings from telephone taps constitutes a potential conflict of interest between the right to report and the right to privacy: while in general it caters for the need for precise, truthful information, at the same time it also runs the risk of violating individuals’ privacy. This article looks at the possibility to identify different forms of treatment according to the individual whose telephone is being tapped, drawing a distinction between private individuals and politicians. It also tackles the question of freedom of information with regard to blogs, considering whether and to what extent a blog can be a modern form of democracy.
