MADDIE WATCH – Anorak’s at-a-glance guide to press coverage of Madeleine McCann , Kate McCann and Gerry McCann

THE SUN : “Maddie: Hol chat on risk of kidnap”

James Clench continues his investigation of the McCann’s holiday , and he’s brought Lucy Hagan along for back up…

Perhaps James can be Gerry McCann and Lucy can be Kate, and they can turn their story into a multi-media play for today? Now read on…

Kate McCann and three friends discussed child-snatchers hours before daughter Madeleine disappeared, it has emerged.

Oh, aye. After yesterday’s news of Kate McCann picking up bade vibes, we now have a story that mother of young children talked about bogey men, stranger danger and paedos. What are the odds? Madeleine McCann: The Full Picture:

Dr Russell O’Brien, one of the so-called Tapas Seven, told police of the “haunting” conversation had while on holiday in Portugal last year. He said it came up after another father said he felt awkward photographing his own child.

Men and children . Beware. Feel the fear What of the other facts?

Dr O’Brien, 37, was with his partner Jane Tanner, 37, Rachel Oldfield, 37, and Kate, 40.

Facts! Now Clench is getting somewhere…

He said: “We then had a conversation about the ludicrous pressure on parents that they can’t take photos of their children.

Bill Henson is listening…

“The other aspect of the conversation, which is doubly haunting, was that we said, ‘You’re far more likely to get clobbered by your uncle or your neighbour than some random stranger’. Since this happened ten or 11 hours before Madeleine was abducted, it seemed a very uncomfortable coincidence.”

The words appear like a challenge for readers to libel someone.

MOM LOGIC (US): “Media Bias: Only White Kids Get Abducted”

Thousands of kids go missing each day — so why do we never seem to hear about the African-American children?

We only hear about Madeleine McCann. She is the benchmark for missing chidlren .

What do JonBenet Ramsey, Madeleine McCann, Elizabeth Smart and Polly Klaas all have in common?

They were all abducted by aliens? They all had six fingers on their left hand? They all liked pink?

They are all girls who have been abducted — or in the most tragic cases, killed — and they are all attractive white girls.

Spooky. Are photogenic white
