This week's privacy transgressions in full

The Mail on Sunday has been found guilty by the PCC of invading the privacy of Daniel Craig, by publishing a picture of the house where his new apartment is, with added details of local parks, so any stalker can find him. I bet Dacre or Wright wouldn't want their homes exposed in this way.

The News of the World has apologised to Kate Moss for writing she was pregnant, when she isn't. Moss is still going to sue for invasion of privacy.

The interesting point of the Moss case is that the original story was printed on 15 Feb. The apology came two weeks later. Compare that to the apology from sister paper The Sun to Muslim bus driver Arunas Raulynaitis, which took five months to appear.
