Quote, unquote: Coverage on approval

“We’re respectful when it comes to our celebrity coverage....We want to take our readers inside the lives of celebrities and you have to be respectful if you want to do that.”
-- Rogers Publishing spokesperson Suneel Khanna, quoted on behalf of Hello! Canada in the Toronto Star. He was responding to a story from the Leveson inquiry in London (sparked by the phone hacking scandal) in which the editor of Hello! in Britain said that 70% of what she publishes is pre-approved by the celebrities they write about.
