Quote hardlinemarxist

"Note – The McCanns have never been cleared of wrong doing. Like Robert Murat, their arguido status was lifted and the investigation into Madeleine’s disappearance was shelved pending further information coming to light. The Madeleine Foundation campaigns for justice for Madeleine McCann. My understanding is that The Madeleine Foundation largely considers Amaral’s thesis to be accurate; this is why they demonstrate support for him."



Quote Tony Bennett, Madeleine Foundation

Dear all,

The BBC has just posted up this synopsis for the programme about The Madeleine Foundation to be shown next Monday 22nd at 7.30pm by BBC TV East Midlands:

Next Monday, 19:30 on BBC One (East Midlands only)

Synopsis

What happened to Madeleine McCann remains a mystery. Her parents were cleared of playing any role in her disappearance, but a controversial group continues to campaign in support of a discredited detective who claims Kate and Gerry McCann covered up the truth. Inside Out investigates the members and motives of the Madeleine Foundation.

I am now fearful that the programme will give us a worse pasting than I thought.

The references to the McCanns being 'cleared' and Amaral being 'discredited' appear to me to be biased to begin with. The language is IMO not neutral.

Nevertheless, I stick by my point of view that the response we had just over a year ago to the awful publicity about us being 'vile sickos', stalkers etc. etc. showed that many people wanted to know more about us, despite the adverse coverage.

We got new members, loads of hits on our website, hundreds of extra books sold, many offers of help etc. etc. For that reason I believe the broadcast will win us new friends and contacts as well as perhaps some new and highly critical enemies.

I would ask you not to be too downhearted by the broadcast, I am still trusting the BBC will observe its duty and OFCOM guidance to produce a fair programme so far as our activities are concerned.

We shall see.

Tony
