Post  marxman on Mon 16 Jan - 17:15

I think a very interesting and revealing report from 2008.
long read, but worth a revisit.

Thank for this marxman

I love this bit about Justine Mcguinness: She says " the narrative of case is superficially easy to understand... this story plays to everybody's common fears. The McCanns represent aspirational Britain. They've worked their way up from a working class background to 'media' careers"( everybody laughs at this freudian slip) . She corrects herself " 'medical' careers I mean.

I LOVE this bit
The woman next to me repeated Clarence Mitchells' claim of "knowing" that Kate and Gerry are innocent. However, Clarence Mitchell and the former Sun editor had said there was no real information - nothing came out of the police's mouths. She then asked him, based on the fact that there was no real information in the public domain, how does he know?
Clarrie replied he knows because he believes Gerry and Kate. She pushed him and stated "so if you know because you believe, then you BELIEVE they are innocent. Therefore you don't really know! " Then she said " Something stinks here!"
Clarrie cowered and mumbled something about semantics, the girl sitting next to you got a nice little clapping for her effort and Clarrie was really humiliated.

How a big story like this works in Britain: normally after 2/3 days
journalists covering the case would have been brought together by
police, off the record, and they would explain what had happened. The
journalists would be given by and large 95% of the story. 5% would be
held back"

Thanks Marxman, Mitchell, despite what we think of him and his public persona of bluster, has been very efficient at maintaining the McCanns in the
Public domain .

The above quote perhaps explains the reason for the U.K. Press to embellish the story because the PJ remained so tight lipped .
