Abstract

Chris Bryant, one of the MPs leading a brave and principled charge against press excesses since he found his own phone was hacked, was ‘outed’ as gay amid a particularly humiliating press scandal in 2003. Bryant’s baptism of tabloid fire blessed him with super powers of political immortality: despite the humiliation at the hands of News International outlets, he has been twice re-elected. And he is no longer afraid of the press.
