In the pursuit of a big story, some journalists have tenuous relationship with things like ethics. For example, one such "journalist" in Europe has reportedly attempted to gain entry to the hospital room of injured racer Michael Schumacher... by dressing as a priest. While this reporter's blatant disregard for the Schumacher family's request for privacy is disturbing, attempting to gain entry to the room of a potentially dying man by dressing as a priest makes it a considerably more heinous act.

"Apparently a journalist dressed as a priest had tried to gain access to Michael's room. I wouldn't have ever imagined something like this could happen," Schumacher's manager, Sabine Kehm said.

Schumacher has been in Grenoble Hospital in France following a skiing accident in Switzerland over the weekend, where he suffered a traumatic brain injury after hitting his head on a rock. In speaking with the assembled media, Kehm also shed some light on how Schumacher's injury came about. According to his manager, Schumacher was probably not skiing at a high rate of speed when fell and hit his head – he had just helped a friend who had fall themselves and then began skiing into deep snow where it's possible the F1 champ hit a rock that caused him to tumble head-first into another rock.

Schumacher's progress towards recovery has been slow and uncertain, and he remains listed in critical condition and in a medically induced coma after a second surgery as of earlier today.
