From Sympathy to Suspicion

With so many vital issues for the British media to focus on it is a reflection of the soap opera focus of the British press corps that so much has been published about the 'Maddie affair'; where the tide of press comment has now dramatically turned against the Doctors McCann.

Whilst the death of a four year old girl, however caused is a tragedy; there is a need to balance that with the many other vital issues and events that affect the lives of British people. The fact that that balance has been missing, yet again, from the press is a reflection of how far editorial journalistic standards have fallen in the British press in recent years.

If one must read about the issue it is The Scotsman that provides probabley the best analysis of the current situation. The Maddie affair: From sympathy to suspicion
