Madeleine McCann: Correcting A Correction

express-apologyMADDIE WATCH – Anorak’s at-a-glance guide to press coverage of Madeleine McCann, Kate McCann and Gerry McCanna few words on apologies:

A WORD on newspaper apologies in the University of Virginia’s Cavalier Daily – oh, the irony – featuring Our Maddie as the ultimate newspaper apology.

Christopher Hitchens has said that the purpose of putting corrections in a newspaper is not really to correct what the paper got wrong. It’s to point out that everything else in the paper was right.

Tim Thornton goes on to talk of corrections and clarifications. And then introduces Craig Silverman, who writes the excellent book Regret the Error.

Madeleine McCann: Mrs Amaral, Kate McCann And Baby Jesus

goncolo-amaralMADDIE WATCH: Special Fury Edition. – Anorak’s at-a-glance guide to press coverage of Madeleine McCann, Kate McCann and Gerry McCann – Today the Sunday Express has chatting thigns over with Goncalo Amaral’s wife, Sophia.

Daily Express: “WE FEEL THE MCCANN’S PAIN AS WELL.”

James Murray speaks not for a nation but for a woman:

THE wife of Portuguese detective Goncalo Amaral has denied they are locked in a personal battle with Kate and Gerry McCann and has spoken of their pity for the distraught couple.

Pity? But surely the McCanns want only their daughter. And for Mrs Amaral’s husband not to write any more books that speculate on what could have happened to their daughter..?

“Everyone thinks we are fighting the McCanns but this is not true. I tell people all the time that they are having to endure the hardest pain in the world, which is losing a child.”

Madeleine McCann: 1,000 New Leads To The Australian Beckham

homwMADELEINE McCann Watch: Anorak’s at-a-glance look at Madeleine McCann in the news: The Third Summer of Maddie, waylaid by Michael Jackson death and Katie Price and Peter Andre’s Tit ‘n’ Tat divorce, has moved into Maddie’s Autumn, as the media brings us threads of news.

Madeleine McCann remains in the news. The parents remain innocent. There are no suspects. There is no evidence of a crime. Now read on:

Daily Express: POSH SPICE’ APPEAL RAISES 1,000 LEADS IN MADDIE HUNT

THE parents of Madeleine McCann have launched a fresh bid to trace a Victoria Beckham lookalike after an appeal sparked 1,000 new leads.

This is the Vicky Beckham lookalike – the witness also described her as “a bit of a Victoria Beckham lookalike” seen pacing about Barcelona looking for a child, or not. And we know Madeleine was in Barcelona because the McCann’s private detective Dave Edgar put down the picture of fat Victoria Beckham to tell us:

“All we can do is try and keep public awareness high – and try and reach as much of that mountainous region outside the resort as we can.”

But Barcelona it is. As Edgar had told us earlier:

Mr Edgar added: “It’s a strong lead. Madeleine could have been in Barcelona by this point. The fact that the conversation took place near the marina could be significant. It is something we are looking at.”

Madeleine McCann: New Prime Suspect As Child Snatched On Beach

benneedham1MADELEINE McCann Watch: Anorak’s at-a-glance look at Madeleine McCann in the news: A child is stolen on a Cyrus beach, Ben Needham is missing. Madeleine McCann is a keyword and Donal MacIntyre identifies the prime suspect…

The Sun: “Stranger snatched Brit tot, 2, off holiday isle beach”

A MUM told yesterday how a stranger snatched her two-year-old son off a beach on a sunshine island – as she watched in horror. The man grabbed little Presley Cassell and fled.

Horror:

The toddler’s dad Nicholas gave chase and grabbed Presley back 30 yards down the beach in Cyprus before the kidnapper could reach a car. Presley’s mum Keeley, 33, said: “He just picked up Presley and ran off down the beach. It happened right in front of our eyes. It was every parent’s nightmare.”

Madeleine McCann Case Solved: What Happened To Her

MADELEINE McCann Watch: Anorak’s at-a-glance look at Madeleine McCann in the news: Donal MacIntyre knows what happened to Our Maddie. It’s front-page news in the Sunday Express:

MADELEINE: WORLD EXCLUSIVE – I KNOW HOW SHE WAS TAKEN. By… Donal MacIntyre.

Yeah, the guy from the telly who investigated football hooligans and ended up being beaten up by friends of the acting hooligan his work helped send down. He knows. Want to know what he knows? The Sunday Express has front-page news:

MADELEINE McCann was abducted by at least two kidnappers who must have carried out several dry runs in the days leading up to her disappearance.

Facts.

After spending a week on the ground investigating the case and the methods used by the kidnappers, I can only conclude that they must have entered the apartment to carry out a rehearsal, because they were working to an incredibly tight schedule.

Madeleine McCann Is Playing In London’s Negative Space

maddie-playMADELEINE McCann has been entertaining media ghouls for three summers. But she’s not been a play. Until now.

As the poster shows, the play should be best watched through a piece of smoked glass and with a Simon Says machine pumping out the notes to Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

Hey, any reaction to the play is better than none, right?

And after the films and the telly shows and the omnibus and the books and the jokes and the PR and the armchair detection you can watch the play.

It’s called Negative Space, and it’s playing at London’s New End theatre. Writing in The Stage, Jonathan Lovett has more:

A missing child is one of the most devastating events in the history of a family. Not knowing if they’re dead or alive induces a form of paralysis that corrodes its sanity as they wait forever for some kind of closure.

As do we all. Grab an ice-cream and bag of Revels – save the orange ones for good causes. Are missing kids your bag? Go on:

Set in the same year as the disappearance of Madeleine McCann, Sternberg and Wayne’s bold attempt to portray the grief of another distraught family is thoughtful and provocative, even if it ultimately fails to mine too deeply the pits of emotion such a tragedy provokes.

Journalist Names Child After Madeleine McCann

mccann17MADELEINE McCann Watch: Anorak’s at-a-glance look at Madeleine McCann in the news: Colin Brazier brings Sky News readers news of his children, in “Choosing A Name Which Holds Its Value”.

Old Mr Anorak’s nephews and nieces Holly, Jessica and little Baby Peter, are visiting Anorak Towers with their mum Myra. Kids, listen up:

“Katharine, Constance, Gwendolyn, Edith and Agnes. Other than Katharine, what horrid names were chosen for the girls.” So wrote a reader in response to a recent story I wrote on having a boy after five girls. I am frequently rendered speechless with mirth or dumbstruck with despair at how utterly vicious my fellow human beings have been made by faceless electronic communication. Some of the emails sent to the Sky News inbox while I, and other presenters, are on-air – for instance – can only be described as actionable.

This news brings us neatly to Madeleine McCann, pet subject for web trolls.

Amaral Speaks At Madeleine McCann Conference

torchesMADELEINE McCann Watch: Anorak’s at-a-glance look at Madeleine McCann in the news: NEWS reaches us that faction author, husband and former policeman Goncalo Amaral is to speak at a Madeleine McCann conference.

Madeleine McCann is no longer a child who went missing. Madeleine McCann is a topic of study and heated debate.

As reported in the Sunday Mercury:

Despite the actions taken against him, Amaral is speaking out at a conference organized by the Madeleine McCann Foundation for those who believe the little girl was not actually abducted, but was killed and a cover up ensued.

To the horses! With leaflets!!

The conference is expected to draw about 150 people in Castle Donington, only 16 miles from the McCann family home. The exact location is not being given out until three days prior to the event because “We dare not give out the venue publicly because of threats of disruption we have had from supporters of the McCann family,” said Anthony Bennett, secretary of the Madeleine McCann Foundation.

A Day In the Life Of Madeleine McCann’s Private Detectives

ANORAK reader Bat E. Bird spots this news of Madeleine McCann in the Belfast Telegraph, as we spend a day with the private detectives:

Madeleine McCann ‘is in a secret lair’

Leading to…

Ulster detective leading the hunt on why he thinks she’s being held captive just like Jaycee Dugard

Jaycee Dugard and Madeleine McCann. Compare and contrast. With free Google keywords points for linking either girl to Victoria Beckham:

The Ulster detective leading the search for Madeleine McCann today reveals his most chilling theories yet, exclusively to Sunday Life. Hardened ex-RUC cop Dave Edgar told us he is convinced that little Maddie is imprisoned in a hellish lair – just like kidnapped sex slave Jaycee Lee Dugard.

This is Dave Edgar who wanted to talks with Raymond Hewlett and of whom the Mail said in light of the Victoria Beckham look-alike:

Private detectives leading the hunt for Madeleine McCann faced questions last night after a Mail on Sunday investigation revealed apparent shortcomings in chasing a ‘strong lead’. The detectives failed to make even rudimentary inquiries before announcing a ‘significant’ development in the worldwide search for the six-year-old.

Now here’s Dave Edgar to tell us:

He insisted the “back from the dead” reappearance of Jaycee – and the cases of Austrian cellar girls Elisabeth Fritzl and Natascha Kampusch – confirmed his suspicion.

Let’s not forget who the real victim is. No, not innocent Madeleine McCann. Well, not only her.  It’s Goncalo Amaral and his wife Sofia:

THE WIFE of a disgraced Portuguese police chief wrote a “poisonous” letter to Kate McCann in an attempt to defend his handling of the botched Madeleine investigation, the Sunday Express can reveal today.

Seeking Madeleine McCann In Jaycee Dugard’s Horror Story

4774481MADELEINE McCann Watch: Anorak’s at-a-glance look at Madeleine McCann in the news: With Jaycee Dugard, Phillip Garrido and the detectives in Portugal…

THE Daily Express tells us that the McCanns’ detectives are in Portugal. With facts:

Detectives looking for have returned to Portugal to pursue new leads which could provide a breakthrough in the case.

They could. But what of these new leads?

Ex-policemen Arthur Cowley and Dave Edgar spent several days speaking to “persons of interest” to the inquiry.

Like who? Raymond Hewlett? Victoria Beckham? Or someone new?

“The investigation has real momentum with definite goals. A vast amount of work has already been done and every new lead is being checked,” a source said.

“Definite goals?” Surely there is only one goal – to find Madeleine McCann.

Maybe the detectives should be in California, speaking to Phillip Garrido? Once again, the Jaycee Dugard case is being linked to Our Maddie:

Irish Times: What do they need to know?

PARENTING: RECENT MEDIA coverage of abducted children has prompted debate among both children’s groups and parents about the most appropriate ways to speak to children on the dangers of abduction and inappropriate contact from adults, writes BRIAN O’CONNELL.

Is talking about kidnapping and paedos a form of child abuse? Hey, kids, still got those balloons?

Both the Madeleine McCann case and, in recent weeks, that of Jaycee Dugard, who was found alive 18 years after being abducted from her home, have raised parents’ sensitivities in this area.

It’s every parents’ worst nightmare – and every media’s fallback story.

Now for the experts’ advice:

* Never leave children unsupervised. If you have to pop out to the shop even for five minutes, ask a neighbour to keep a watchful eye…

• Be mindful that the majority of abduction cases involve someone familiar to the person abducted.

Now, read on….

Madeleine McCann Spotted In Devon, Man Questioned By Police

mccann14MADELEINE McCann Watch: Anorak’s at-a-glance look at Madeleine McCann in the news – THE Media’s third summer of Madeleine McCann was stymied by Michael Jackson’s death, bad weather and Katie Price. Even Victoria Beckham could not reignite the craze. But then Jaycee Lee Dugard was found and, well, the papers made the link and this happened…

STUNNED Jon Hazlehurst and his eight-year-old stepdaughter were quizzed by cops after she was mistaken for Madeleine McCann. A member of the public raised the alarm when she spotted them at a petrol station and thought blonde Lauren was missing Maddie.

And… Is it here? The Sun says…

She jotted down Jon’s car details and dialled 999 and officers went straight to his home nearby in Kingsbridge, Devon. There they found his stepson Jack, 15, who gave them Jon’s mobile number and police told him to immediately report to the local nick.

Madeleine McCann: Watching Amelie And Sean Start School

find-maddyMADELEINE McCann Watch: Anorak’s at-a-glance look at Madeleine McCann in the news – We’re watching Our Maddie’s twin siblings Amelie and Sean go to school with Jaycee Dugard.

Sky News tells us: “Parents’ Pain As Twins Join Madeleine School”

All the media talks is of the McCanns’ pain: Pain. Pain. Pain.

We are not looking for the missing child, we are watching the parents, as ever. And we are watching the children. Nothing creepy about watching someone else’s children, a stranger’s children start school. This is just good wholesome gawping.

After “pain” the other word is “proud”. As all news sources tell us, Kate McCann and Gerry McCann are proud. This from Sky:

It will be a proud moment for her parents when they drop off twins Sean and Amelie for their first day in primary class in Thurmaston, Leics. But the occasion will be tinged with overwhelming sadness for the couple.

Jaycee Dugard Rapist Phillip Garrido Linked To Madeleine McCann Abduction

jaycee-garridoMADELEINE McCann Watch: Anorak’s at-a-glance look at Madeleine McCann in the news – Jaycee Dugard And Our Maddie. Phillip Craig Garrido and his wife Nancy Garrido took Jaycee Dugard.

WHEN Jaycee Lee Dugard went missing she was her own person. Now she has returned to a post-Madeleine McCann world and the media is able to make sense of her abduction, rape and impregnation by known paedophile Phillip Garrido (he fathered two children with Jaycee Dugard) and his wife Nancy. Such is the impoverished state of journalism that the story of Jaycee Lee Dugard needs context:

Chris Ayres beat the world to the punch by linking Jaycee Dugard to Madeleine McCann and now his words appear in the Irish Independent, albeit under the title:

US ‘Maddy’ turns up 18 years after her abduction

The blonde, blue-eyed girl was 11 years old when she was abducted from outside her home near Lake Tahoe, California.

Blonde hair and blue eyes keeps the media interested.

Madeleine McCann Spotted In Gaza, Lost Again In Las Vegas

gazaMADELEINE McCann has been linked to the War on Terror, but can she now be linked to Islamicists trying to create an Islamic emirate in Gaza? And she’s found in Las Vegas…

To ASSEMBLY @ ASSEMBLY HALL, VENUE 35 of the Edinburgh Fringe festival.

He has just survived – for now – the shelling of his home city of Gaza by Israeli forces. Suddenly, an older man erupts from one of the heaps of wreckage around him, coughing and spluttering into the light. This is Abu Mohammed, a ‘tunnel trader’, or one of those merchants who smuggles goods into Gaza through a secret subterranean supply network; food, matches and even livestock.

Or guns and bullets, Iranian soldiers and jihadis… But the best bit is yet to come:

As with the sequence that attempts to westernise the loss of children by bringing out an unnecessary Madeleine McCann analogy, the play isn’t perfect; but, in witnessing the raw power of a man recounting the death of his own daughters in crudely translated Arabic, its demand for answers about an atrocious time in a man-made hell carries huge moral and emotional impact.

Time, then, to blame the Jews for Our Maddie, finally. How can it have taken so long? But where is she? One woman knows:

Onstage in a spacious Las Vegas banquet hall sits a nervous-looking, dark-haired Danish woman named Connie Sonne. The 46-year-old retired police officer made a name for herself as a psychic in Europe by claiming she knows the whereabouts of famous missing British toddler Madeleine McCann. Sonne also says she can read playing cards through sealed envelopes using only a crystal. If she can successfully demonstrate her skills in this controlled experiment at the South Point Hotel, Casino and Spa, she’ll receive $1 million.

Does she do it?

No.

And Madeleine McCann is still missing…

Madeleine McCann Stars In US Crime Show

maddie-mccann-tvMADELEINE McCann Watch: Anorak’s at-a-glance look at Madeleine McCann in the news –

How entertaining have you found the disappearance of Madeleine McCann? Is it better of worse than Lost, the show with no end? For some people the tale of a child vanished could to with more plot structure and a decent pay off at the finale, maybe a high-speed car chase or a fistfight in the courtroom.

Playing armchair detective is great fun but the story of Our Maddie has always been a single-thread narrative, lacking the multi-layering that TV executives enjoy. So here’s an episode of Law & Order to shows all parties how it should be done:

Madeleine McCann: Investigating The Detectives’ Failings

7677076MADELEINE McCann Watch: Anorak’s at-a-glance look at Madeleine McCann in the news – Private detectives fail, Private detectives do PI and PR and the Madeleine McCann Foundation is famous…

Daily Mail: “So why did Madeleine McCann detectives ask so few questions after major breakthrough?”

Dunno. Why?

Private detectives leading the hunt for Madeleine McCann faced questions last night after a Mail on Sunday investigation revealed apparent shortcomings in chasing a ‘strong lead’. The detectives failed to make even rudimentary inquiries before announcing a ‘significant’ development in the worldwide search for the six-year-old.

Watching the detectives… Following the news that “Victoria Beckham” possibly abducted Madeleine McCann, it occurs to the Mail that the private investigators may be clutching at dried grasses:

The Mail on Sunday, however, has established that members of Mr Edgar’s team who had visited Barcelona:

Failed to speak to anyone working at the seafood restaurant near where the agitated woman was seen at 2am.
Failed to ask the port authority about movement of boats around the time Madeleine disappeared.
Failed to ask if the mystery woman had been filmed on CCTV.
Knew nothing about the arrival of an Australian luxury yacht just after Madeleine vanished until told by British journalists, who gave them the captain’s mobile phone number.
Failed to interview anyone at a nearby dockside bar where, according to Mr Edgar, the mystery woman was later seen drinking.
Failed to ask British diplomats in Spain for advice before or during the visit.

* Succeeded in getting the missing child back in the news and kickstarting the belated Third Summer of Our Maddie. They say PI. Some say PR.

Last night Mr Edgar said: ‘We are not above criticism and I take responsibility for any shortcomings. If somebody has not done what they should have done, that’s my job to deal with that.’
