Thousands of people had their phone accounts hacked. Many celebrities' photos were looked through, and tons of important information was stolen. There's an investigation ongoing with suspects and blah blah blah. It'll be on Law and Order in no time.
What's getting all the press? PARIS HILTON WAS ONE OF THOSE THOUSANDS HACKED!
Just another reminder : They are covering what they want you to hear about, not what you are interested in.
