Joanne Rowling’s Testimony About Intrusive Press (2011)

This is important background information for the treatment of reporters in both the Hogwarts Saga and the Cormoran Strike novels. Ms Rowling’s anger and sense of violation is right out there — and seeing this video of her testimony has made me take much more seriously the possibility that her story take-down of a cynical press corps will play a much larger role in her mysteries than Rita Strike and The Daily Prophet did in Harry’s adventures.

Hat tip to MuggleNet’s Keith Hawk for this find.


  1. I assume you mean Rita Skeeter as opposed to Rita Strike.

  2. Yes, I meant ‘Skeeter’!
