The McCann affair is a scandal

October 23, 2008

Brian Carthcart in the New Statesman argues that it is a scandal the treatment that the British press gave to the McCanns and the Tapas 7.

The author calls for a public inquiry and adds:

“And an inquiry might not only look at the conduct of reporters and newspapers, but could also assess the arguments about the conduct of the McCanns, who have been accused of manipulating public opinion through adept use of public relations”.

In my view, how the McCanns have conducted themselves is a scandal. And, I would welcome a public inquiry if only to hear the McCanns answers to the questions they have been evading fron Day One.
