Madeleine McCann: Reporting Going Cheap

by | 6th, November 2008

THE GUARDIAN continues to beat the Star and Express with a big Madeleine McCann-shaped stick:

The price cut follows a string of high profile problems for Express Newspapers, owner of the Daily Star, which was forced last month to apologise and pay £375,000 in libel damages to the so-called ‘tapas seven’, the group Kate and Gerry McCann dined with on the night their daughter Madeleine disappeared, after the publisher ran a series of defamatory stories about the group.

Get that? The Star and Express are now cheaper because of the McCanns? Will the Sun and Mail be cheaper? What about subscriptions to Sky TV?

In March, Kate and Gerry McCann accepted £550,000 from Express Newspapers after the Daily and Sunday Express, the Daily Star and Daily Star Sunday ran numerous defamatory articles after their daughter Madeleine disappeared from the Praia da Luz resort in Portugal on May 3, 2007.

Cheap reporting all round, then…
