Does he also shower after a little bit of web surfing?

Ok, so I do not like the guy much, actually I hit the Channel Up button as soon as I see his face on my TV, but really, does it make him such a bad guy if he's been investing in a little online porn?!

Porn surprise amid Zuma evidence
Pornographic images have appeared on a computer hard drive handed over by South African prosecutors to former Deputy President Jacob Zuma.

It's not like it was kiddy porn or bestiality or anything illegal. As far as I can read, somehow a few pornographic images ended up on his hard drive. But, really, so what? Is this really the stuff that news is made of!?

I realise the media & certain political figures are out to get the guy. And who wouldn't be, when he (unfairly) is trying to sue anyone with a journo badge & a wallet full of cash, but some of this does reek of "Smear Campaign" & is exhausting and ridiculous.

Porn is great. It's low risk behaviour. It is allowing through completely natural feelings (What makes you think I am a trained sex educator!). As long as you keep those feelings healthy and act on them only in legal ways, I say google "porn" or follow spam mail links away.

I just wish he had kept his sex life to online porn!

Meanwhile, if this is an example that any up-and-coming political hopeful will get "smear campaigned" then please excuse me, I have some mags under my mattress to burn and hard drives to crash ............I am joking. I don't invest in the industry. E-TV provides it to me free of charge! ;o)

hmmm.... I guess I better start cleaning up....burn the VHS's, The DVD's and delete all the MPEG's and WMV's...oh and throw away the mags... :o?

Yeah...ill be honest, I didnt really get this...I mean nearly everybody I know has Porn in some form or another....its legal so whats the big deal... ??? sure the guy is a tosser but peeps cant nail him with something like this....

Its just the papers trying to sell more papers and everybody knows that by throwing Porn into a sentence it becomes more interesting ;)

Exactly Fly! Although, I would've thought that, seeing the words "Porn" & "Zuma" in the same sentence would be the biggest deterent to buy a newspaper!

[By the way, great to hear from you again & welcome back!! Where've you been as of late?]

Hey Champs, Zuma was given a disk by the state which contained the documentation the state is considering using against him. The disk also contains a few porn pics. It wasn't Zuma's disk, he found the pics on a disk issued by the state.

I laughed when the artical said that Zuma and his lawyers " were "shocked" and "traumatised" to find 15 pornographic images."

WTF??!? Our future president traumatised by porn! Somebody save us!

Champagne Heathen said...

OH! Soon after posting this, I read another article on the topic that was trying to say what you just explained. I think. I got pretty confused (mainly cos I often just skimread) and decided to rather get back to my work.

Thanks for the clarity! Though the BBC article & the headlines along the roads here seem to say he was looking up porn. Which again I will fight for being a great unashamed practice ;o) !!

And, Dave, I am sure I have discussed this on my blog before. Please never ever put his name and terms like "future president" in the same sentence!! Even if it is denial, I am happy to be in it!

That post title alone was worth the price of admission.

Just rename all your porn files to .xls or .doc
Noone will check your actually work!

fly said...

yeah....just been real busy...work is keeping me active and what with the band and all and all...

You know how it goes..... ;o)

TwoFlower said...

gotta love the journalism in our country (and i suppose everywhere else in the world)- sensationalism is what always seems to get the readers interested and therefore buying more papers...

Champagne Heathen said...

Well, why thank you, Kyk!

Rev, with the sort of work I do, they might think some of my actual work docs are porn!! LOVE my job sometimes.

At my old company, they were so paranoid about people looking up porn that they'd print out a list of your visited websites each month & your manager would have to sign off on it. ....makes me wonder again why I was never fired!

Fly - I am learning how to goes too quickly. Damn these REAL jobs!

2F...that's why I read online newspapers...I refuse to financially support their sensationalism. I'd rather let the ad companies do that!

Man, today is so slow at work that I am starting to think I should actually start some porn surfing...

fly said...

girls surfing for porn...now I like that... :o)

Dolce said...

Ag, agree with you...if only he'd kept it online...

...and I just know he's going to end up our fearless leader...

*sigh*

Champagne Heathen said...

fly - glad I could entertain your daydreaming for a bit today ;o)

dolce - don't you start too!

Retro_Girl said...

hey champs

just to support your notion (even if its delusional) Zuma won't be president, so relax for now...

as for the porn thing, news is news, and anything Zuma-related has become news.

Oh, i'm a journo, don't hate on us, we're just regular employees like everyone else.
If you looking for someone to blame, try the editors and the media owners.

I swear my editor is soooo obsessed with anything Zuma does. if I wear a Puma T-shirt, he'll probably ask me to investigate if "Puma" has any link with "Zuma"

TwoFlower said...

retro girl: tee hee - Puma and Zuma! i enjoyed that! 'simple things for simple people' (i'm calling myself simple here so don't worry!)

Champagne Heathen said...

Retro chickita, thanks for keeping my fantasy land alive here in no-Zuma presidency!

Also, we have a go at journos often around here it seems, but we do all realise its the guys with th finances & final says that are the main deciders on the stories & their angles, so never fear!

And yeah, I am surprised he's not getting flack from your boss for his (impossible) involvement in the nation's current natural disasters!

2F - I like simple things. Expensive. But simple!

spoon said...

they're wasting their time on the smear campaign...most of Zuma supporters don't read and the one's that do wouldn't care anyway!

fly said...

well said spoon...

I had an interesting conversation with a very intelligient and politically focussed black gentleman a couple of days ago about this very same thing...and he said exactly what you are saying...but....personally im gunning for old Cyril :o) just knowing that Zuma might not have a chance, made me smile all day...
