Madeleine McCann: On Tour In Amsterdam
IN “At last Kate McCann can smile again“, the Daily Express tells readers:
For once, grieving Kate McCann can find something to smile about. So often pictured as a sad, withdrawn figure, she and husband Gerry burst into laughter as they promoted her book about their lost daughter Madeleine.
But they weren’t laughing all day. The camera captures a moment in time. The news is thin and loaded. We are not told why they “burst into laughter”, only that they did. The photos of a sad withdrawn figure are also snap shots in time. We do not see the woman all the time. We see the photos the media thinks tells a story. We are just being invited to stare at the parents.
The couple were in Amsterdam to launch the Dutch edition of the book which they hope will help to boost the search for Madeleine across Europe.
Maybe it will… As it is, Madeleine McCann is missing. There are no suspects. There is no proof of any crime having befallen her.
All newspapers need do is stick to the facts…
