Is Madeleine McCann Disappearing From The UK Press?

daily-express-mccann.jpgTHE Anorak has been watching the media’s treatment of the Madeleine McCann story for some months.

The tragedy of a missing child was turned into a media feeding frenzy, a grim story with any gaps in the narrative plugged with speculation and voyeurism.

We were invited to become sleuths, armchair detectives working out who had done what and how. Nothing meaningful has been achieved by this. Madeleine McCann is missing.

Who cannot feel for those involved? Who would want to be them?  

Now Anorak learns from a reader that the Madeleine McCann story may be disappearing from the British press, and newspapers’ websites.

Anorak’s team of moderators seeks to weed out libellous comments and anyone making accusations against individuals they cannot back up. We seek not to mirror the press but show you how the story is presented by media outlets to their audiences. Now read this:

Madeleine McCann is vanishing from the British Press

Every single story in the Daily Express and in the Daily Star regarding Madeleine McCann has disappeared.

This was the answer given by the Daily Express’ online editor, Geoff Marsh:

“Hi xxx, Many thanks for your email. For operational reasons, some articles previously available on have been temporarily removed. I’m afraid I can’t go into any more detail. Best wishes, Geoff”

And from the web team of Daily Express:

“Hi xxx
