Media justice: Madeleine McCann, and "trial by media" in the British press by Greer and McLaughlin

Post  Loopdaloop on Sun 7 Apr - 1:16

I've only just seen this journal article on the mccannfiles.
I would encourage you all to read it and let me know what you think!
It gives a very good timeline and overview of events that anyone can quote safe in the knowledge that it is taken from a scientific journal! As far as im aware when something is published in a scientific journal it's the equivalent to repeating something that is said in court!

The full link to it is here.

Media justice: Madeleine McCann, intermediatization and "trial by media" in the British press City University London

Greer, C. & McLaughlin, E. (2012). Media justice: Madeleine McCann, intermediatization and "trial by media" in the British press. Theoretical Criminology, 16(4), 395 - 416. doi: 10.1177/1362480612454559

Abstract

Three-year-old Madeleine McCann disappeared on 3 May 2007 from a holiday apartment in Portugal. Over five years and multiple investigations that failed to solve this abducted child case, Madeleine and her parents were subject to a process of relentless 'intermediatization'. Across 24–7 news coverage, websites, documentaries, films, YouTube videos, books, magazines, music and artworks, Madeleine was a mediagenic image of innocence and a lucrative story. In contrast to Madeleine's media sacralization, the representation of her parents, Kate and Gerry McCann, fluctuated between periods of vociferous support and prolonged and libellous 'trial by media'. This article analyses how the global intermediatization of the 'Maddie Mystery' fed into and fuelled the 'trial by media' of Kate and Gerry McCann in the UK press. Our theorization of 'trial by media' is developed and refined through considering its legal limitations in an era of 'attack journalism' and unprecedented official UK inquiries into press misconduct and criminality.

The abstract does not do justice to the specific content we might all find interesting!
When I'm able I'll quote some. It's. It in the meantime if you see things that you think are key, please quote them!

I don't know anything about the authors as of yet but one appear to have been involved as part of the press pack.

"Over five years and multiple investigations that failed to solve this abducted child case"

Sloppy writing.

Sloppy writing.

And another example I think:

Madeleine and her parents were subject to a process of relentless 'intermediatization'

Either they were subjected to or they were the subject of.

"Over five years and multiple investigations that failed to solve this abducted child case."

I would assume the writer to be a McCann disciple, as there is not one iota of evidence to support an abduction. Nor have there been multiple investigations, just the one that was conducted by the Portuguese Police and everyone on God's earth with a modicum of sense and integrity knows why that was shelved.
