Goodbye, Cruel World

'..Let’s not fool ourselves that the problem is confined to the red-tops either. The pressure to reveal the ‘personal angle’ of every story – however inappropriate – is also undermining the journalism of the quality newspapers as well. One of Britain’s most respected social commentators once told me of her anger at being asked to churn out yet another piece on the Madeleine McCann story after she had clearly expressed the view, in print, that in the absence of new evidence any further speculation added nothing to our understanding but simply fuelled a ghoulish media circus. And in the McCann case, just as in that of Joanna Yates, a man we now know to be innocent had his life wrecked by irresponsible speculation...'
