Tom Arnold Battles Tabloid Drug Recovery Stories

Funnyman TOM ARNOLD is getting serious with America's tabloid newspapers over reporters' infiltration of drug and alcohol meetings.

The TRUE LIES star plans to lobby pal ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER, the Governor of California, to change state laws to ban reporting from supposedly off-limits addiction meetings.

He says, "I'm going to pursue action with Arnold Schwarzenegger, with his office, at least in California to pass legislation that makes this a sacred place - much like the church confessional is; much like your therapist office is.

"You have to have trust and you have to be able to share honestly."

The actor, who has battled his own drug and booze problems, reveals he was enraged when he read a recent story in the GLOBE, which revealed the recovery efforts of one major movie star's 12-year-old son.

He fumes, "It's was terrible what they did. It's disgusting, it's life-threatening.

"Here's a kid, a minor, trying to save his own life and they've gone into the meeting and quoted people from this meeting."
