Buying Stolen Property Is Not Journalism

The Sun, back in 2008:

A plot to sell intimate stolen photographs of Prince William and his girlfriend Kate Middleton has been smashed — thanks to The Sun. The snaps showed the pair relaxing on a Caribbean hol. We were offered them for £50,000, but alerted cops. One man was arrested and bailed.

The snaps — some of the most personal and intimate pictures ever taken of the couple — were offered to The Sun on a stolen camera flashcard.
