There’s a recording that has hit the Internet of David Hasselhoff’s daughter calling 911 because he had collapsed from alcohol. Why are these things released to the press? We have very strong medical privacy laws in this country for most things, but then we have the government releasing recordings of calls for medical help, in order to entertain the public. If you do that, it might deter people from calling 911 for help with shameful or embarrassing problems. That’s why we have medical privacy. Why is there this exception?
Are these things being released through official channels, or are they being leaked? If the latter, then does anyone ever get fired or arrested over it?
