Against telephone tapping

When we were children, parents and tutors tought a simple lesson: do not look at other people mail.
It was a basic message, easy to understand: everyone has right to some privacy and intruding in other people life is not good.
These days, publishing in the newspaper telephone conversations among two persons seems normal. Furthermore, newspapers sell it as good journalism, as if searching in the garbage needed high professionalism.
I think that everybody as a right to privacy. I am not against judges examining telephone communications (or mail) when this is justified, but this does not allow exposing those words on the pages of a newspaper.
This is not journalism, is voyeurism.
