When Will Journalists Stop Pussyfooting With the McCanns?

Post  maebee on Mon 23 Jul - 11:35

Did you know that Kate McCann is now an ambassador for a missing kids charity; Hmm Id reckon that the editor of The Bastard might cooment that Kates daughter Madeleine aint missing or that it would be more appropriate for Kate to be working for a charity concerned with murdered kids.

The other week I was listening to an interview with Kate McCann in her role as an ambassador for whatever missing kids charity it is shes an ambassador for, it was an interview on BBC Radio 5 Live with I think Shelagh Fogarty & oh boy was it touchy feely as just about every other interview I heard with Kate McCann in the British media. When are journalists in the British media going to stop pussyfooting with Kate & Gerry McCann & ask them some hard questions?

When Kate McCann released her book she appeared on BBC2s Newsnight & though I didnt see the interview myself Ive been told Kirsty Wark who was doing the interview gave Kate McCann an easy ride & was you guessed it all very touchy feely. Kirsty Wark being touchy feely! Kirsty Wark is known for being a heavyweight journalist, she isnt usually known for being touchy feely, shes known as Jeremy Paxman in a skirt, which actually begs the question why it wasnt Jeremy Paxman interviewing Kate McCann? Oh now theres an interview Id tune into watch, Paxman vs the McCanns, hed not pussyfoot, hed not be scared to ask them hard questions, err maybe not because if you aint nice to the McCanns they threaten to sue you.

Hey Shovel have the McCanns threatened to sue us yet? Ah I shouldnt tempt fate should I.

Funny isnt it that when Kate McCann released her book that nobody sued her for libel, yet anytime somebody writes a book giving a different version of events to the version McCanns want people to believe they find themselves on a receiving end of a lawsuit from the McCanns.

I dont necessarily believe the McCanns are guilty of murder, but Id like to know why they left a three year old home alone with the front door unlocked & the bedroom window opened. At most the Mccanns might be guilty of murder but the bare least I reckon theyre guilty of neglect or child endangerment. Its pretty stupid to be leaving a three year old home alone with the front door open & the bedroom window open, because three year olds can be pretty adventurous; when I was three years old I nearly fell out of a second storey window due to not being supervised.

Its time journalists stopped pussyfooting, stop being touchy feely, grow a spine & start asking the McCanns some hard questions. It suppose to be the job of journalists to challenge those in the public eye & that includes the likes of Kate & Gerry McCann.

Missing children's ambassador Katiekins is noticeably absent from the search for the missing sisters.
Why is that?

Paxman has already interviewed GM - it was pretty obvious that he hadn't been allowed to use his normal 'attack dog' approach, but he did register his contempt and disbelief via facial expressions.

But he really got to GM when he asked him if he thought he'd 'reaped a whirlwind'.
This produced , from the interviewee, the 'Here's Johnny' rictus grin which went on FOREVER and spoke volumes.

He really is a horrid man and very rude with it with his continual butting in when the other person is trying to speak.

Yep - that gig on the courthouse steps where he's bawling 'let me finish!' - right in Sandra Felgueiras's face.

Most uncouth.
No wonder he had to rush home.

A reminder of Jeremy Paxman's infamous interview with Michael Howard.

I've not actually watched it through to the end as anything repetitive has me diving for the off switch - did Mr Howard ever answer the question?!

The reason they are given a easy ride is they sold themselves to the media as innocent victims and the media bought into it lock stock and barrel.It will need IMO a confession from them at the very least to turn the press around and that aint going to happen.

I think all the journalists have been told to give them an easy ride, I dont think I
can recall anyone asking why they keep changing what they say from one minute
to the next or about the number of untruths told!

There was this very early incident when they were challenged by a German journalist - I wonder if she's back from exile in Siberia yet!

Hi Cherry i don't believe in all those conspiracy theories ,their PR as been second to none .
They are IMO just a couple of doctors who commited a crime and got away with it through very clever PR it happens unfortunately.

No he just answered the one which wasn't asked.

never has a couple been shielded as much -- even the royals get bad press -- there is a lot that is true that they can print without being sued --- but the uk public are seeing the mcanns for what they are --- the sun the book launch --- even the people i know that think they only neglected their children are sick of the sight of them --- let them carry on --- higher they fly harder they will fall --- when who knows --- they can run they can think they can lead a normal life no way the circus they created will ensure never a days peace
