Leeveson - Mail Picture Editor - Paul Silva

Post  NoStone on Wed 11 Jan - 13:01



Counsel to the inquiry Robert Jay QC questioned Mr Silva about Kate and Gerry McCann, whose daughter Madeleine went missing in Portugal in 2007.

Mr Silva admitted that the Daily Mail had used unpixelated pictures of the McCanns' other children against the newspaper's general policy

"This was a unique situation … where we'd been allowed to stand in a certain position … and take pictures of the children."

But when asked whether he should not have used the pictures, Mr Silva said: "In hindsight, possibly … but there was no objection raised at the time."

Yes indeed.
And according to the Guardian Live Blog:

" ... he (Mr Silva) adds all of the photographs used would have been approved by the McCanns' press officer, Clarence Mitchell."

About time these new editors started speaking about the fact that at the time G&K were using the press they were happy to parade the twins about for photo's to be taken, what did the McCanns think the papers were going to do with them put them on there walls fgs leveson is not the right man for this job imo.##
lets hope the tide is turning as far as the press getting the blame for stuff that we know the McCanns/Mitchell were happy to let the press in on at the time, this poor me as got to stop when we know that they were responsible for what was going on.

They are worrying about pixelated photographs but the McCanns organised a "family day" for the photographers did they not?

Yes, they posed nicely for that one and I haven't seen any complaints from them.
