Madeleine McCann: BBC, Mirror And Sun Lied Over Goncalo Amaral And Still Fail To Apologise

MADELEINE McCann: Do you remember whan Goncalo Amaral told the Mcanns Fuck The McCanns “? Yeah, you do .  We were sceptical . Tony Parsons told Mirror readers:

Maddy McCann cop adds insults to injury by  Tony Parsons:

If, as has been suggested in Portugal, there was a “media circus” around the disappearance of Madeleine McCann, then it is the Portuguese police who are the clowns. Cruel, stupid, spiteful clowns. The Portuguese police were shown up as a bunch of clueless amateurs by the Madeleine case, and – shamed, embarrassed, infuriated – they turned their rage on the McCanns.

Even now, the Portuguese cops treat Kate and Gerry McCann with a grotesque lack of respect. Asked if he cared that he had hurt the McCanns, Goncalo Amaral told a BBC reporter: “No, f*** the McCanns.” A class act, that fat copper, who has sought to make money out of a stolen child – and the endless grief of her parents…

But it is also genuinely tragic that the Portuguese police did not seriously look for the bastard who stole her.And that’s because they have always been far too busy slandering that little girl’s parents.

Disgraced Portuguese detective in four letter outburst at Kate and Gerry McCann

Disgraced detective Goncalo Amaral yesterday let rip at Kate and Gerry McCann with a foul-mouthed outburst.

The Sun’s Tom Wells and Antonella Lazzeri agreed:

Vile cop: F*** the McCanns

THE ex-cop who led the Madeleine McCann probe sparked new outrage last night after launching a four-letter tirade against the missing child’s parents. Brazen Goncalo Amaral spat, “F*** the McCanns” when asked by a BBC TV reporter if he felt his wild claims about their daughter were hurting them. Producers bleeped out the slur when a report was broadcast in the East Midlands region where Kate and Gerry McCann live. Amaral, axed after leading the abortive early investigation into Maddie’s disappearance in 2007, flipped before entering a court in Portugal’s capital…

That article is also on the Sun’s website.

Only it was not so.

Complaint
The programme included a brief exchange between a reporter and Gonçalo Amaral (a former policeman who had worked on the disappearance of Madeleine McCann and had since written a book on the case). One word in the exchange was bleeped,
