It’s usually a reliable sign that a once-original idea has been utterly stripped of its impact by the time it becomes the premise for a reality television show. Not so for “Big Brother.” Several seasons of that particular televised train wreck have come and gone, and besides, Apple Computer also cashed in on the whole surveillance paranoia theme ages ago. Big Brother is watching. We get it.

If Foster’s Not Coming Out, CNN’s Coming In

One major price of fame is, famously, the lack of personal privacy that comes with the package.  This issue gets trickier when it comes to homosexuality and the practice of outing public figures, as various media outlets have long attempted to do in Jodie Foster’s case.
