Title: Has the Daily Star plunged to new depths of depravity?
Post by: John on May 22, 2013, 12:23:58 AM
The Daily Star today went with the headline, 'Maddie' found in Ireland after yesterday going with 'Maddie' found in Greece while printing pictures of the missing 10-year-old alongside the articles.

Has the British Press yet again shown themselves to be totally out of control and unfit to practise self regulation?

Was Leveson a useless exercise and a complete waste of money after all?

 reached an all time low by printing such a headline?

Thanks to Kazcutt for posting the links to the Daily Star.

What do members think about these headlines which have only one objective and that is to sell papers?

Just put yourself in the shoes of Kate and Gerry for a moment,  would you like to read these calculated lies if it was your kid?

Sincerely, John, I think there is much worse than those obviously ridiculous headlines. Cheating readers they risk to loose them and will have to readjust.
Do you really think the McCanns are hoping when the person close to them claims their hope is refreshed ?

they are seasoned to them over the years so its more like water off a ducks back to them...their spokesmans comments are just lip service to the idea Madeleine may well be alive and findable, awful that they hijack every case reported though.......even when it has ZERO connection....I remember the papers reporting on Claudia Lawrence vigil, Kate Mccanns photo was all over the front pages like it had sod all to do with her....her family  given a back seat!!

Wonder what the families of these children feel being connected with Madeleine Mccanns "abduction" but they dont matter, they are children stealing gypsies........cough

I  would guess that no, the Daily Star hasn't plunged to new depths, because they've probably attained such depths before. But I don't read it so I can't really comment.

But the Leveson question is interesting and that's a saga that's still ongoing. Leveson could only recommend, he couldn't implement, so whether or not it was a waste of money will very much depend on what's finally put in place. I think the all party "carrot and stick" proposal is a good one myself, but the press barons may well yet succeed in derailing it.

Thank you all for the comments.  So do we just turn a blind eye to this garbage or should they face some sort of sanction for printing these deliberately misleading articles... Maddie found in Ireland - Shock as blue-eyed girl discovered with second Roma family and Maddie found in Greece - New hope as stolen girl turns up at gypsy camp.

The DS set out to deliberately mislead the public with those headlines. Is it not bad enough that Madeleine might be lying in some shallow grave or at the bottom of a pit without these mindless moronic journalists making things worse for her parents?

IMO The only reason why some people are against the Hacked off campaign is because the McCanns are in favour of it - and they are quite happy to turn a blind eye to the suffering the press has caused to all the other innocent victims in their pursuit of their 'dislike' of the McCanns.

Strange isn't it - you would think that as (according to some people) the McCanns 'control' the press they would be the last people in the world to want any changes - but in fact it's quite the opposite - as they are supporting the Leveson recommendations.  How weird is that?

There were around 176,000 signatures in support of the Hacked off Petition last time I looked.

If what the McCanns had to say was of no relevance to the Leveson enquiry they would not have been allowed to contribute.   It's pure nonsense to suggest otherwise.   They were victims of the press and it was the press that was the subject of the enquiry.

Not always, they were given a chance to stop the stories by Christopher Meyer  early on.....they rejected his help!

Youre sooo naive Benice......bless though

I never said they were irrelevant, the leveson inquiry sprung from the phone hacking scandal...nothing at all to do with the mccanns...not one iota.... The terms were broadened slightly....the mccanns jumped on...before you know it the mccanns abuse by the media was THE story above all others, real victims, so YES, they hijacked it.....

The McCanns used the press to help them in their search for Madeleine - to keep her profile as high as possible which is the advice given by the experts-  to give the missing person the best chance of being found. 

The press for their part used and then abused them to increase their profits and have never stopped using them since.   

The press don't give a hoot about the McCanns, but they know their name sells newspapers - and that is the only reason why they never miss a chance to bring Madeleine's name into every article they can.    FGS the proof of that is there for all to see in the Star articles!

You seem to have forgotten what the press did to the McCanns and their friends - once again purely in the name of profit, but which they eventually and quite rightly had to pay 900,000 in compensation.   

The Leveson enquiry sought to prevent that flagrant persecution and downright libelling of innocent people by a Press who didn't care if lives were being ruined as long as the profits were up.   I do not understand how anyone except the Press Barons can be against that.

All the stories the Express group ran were correct at the time of publication, however owing to Portuguese secrecy law the journalists were unable to name their sources at that time (them sources being the PJ), and thus the McCanns & T7 were able to exploit this legal technicality.

As a hero of mine once said ...''You cannot be serious'' 

The case didn't even get to court for any 'legal technicalities' to be exploited.   The 'press 'knew they didn't have a leg to stand on and so offered an out of court settlement - as the cheapest way for them to deal with the consequences of their blatent and repeated libel.

IMO as long as the profits they made from libelling the McCanns exceeded the 'damages' settlement - then it was worth it .   The Leveson Enquiry sought to change that situation - so that NOT libelling people became the preferred option from a profit-making POV.

The legal technicality, as I already explained ,was that they (Express journalists) could not name the sources of the stories they wrote (the PJ because of secrecy law).
Yes your right, it did not make it to court & Express group settled, it was an impossible case for them to fight.
But not because anything they printed was untrue but simply their sources could not be confirmed.

The propaganda machine is well and truly oiled.

Which is what bothers me most about this case, not the fate of the girl but the obvious lies we are forced to accept by the MSM.
If they can spin & lie about this case freely & force people to buy it, then our freedom of thought & opinion is under threat.
God help us indeed.
