The saga of Madeleine McCann continues right up until now and on into the future (poor child). The point of this piece is to do a few things. Firstly do you remember back in the day when both BBC and ITV did investigative journalism? Not always brilliant and sometimes flawed by individual opinion, it was nonetheless something that often trod on feet(s) pulled some punches and raised as many questions as they answered. Point one is that really is now in the past, these days unless your debating the rights of Trangender people, applauding celebrities or relishing in their downfall, maybe doing a light as a feather interview or whatever mainstream media has lost both it's teeth and it moral compass.
Someone mocked in a comment here not to long ago that an interview was good enough for youtube but not TV as if that really matters anymore. In a sense and by looking at the amount of censorship being applied by Youtube to non 'woke' material, my second point is that the MSM is now individual journalism on line, every bit as much as it is, the likes of CNN and BBC News 24 & their biased unprincipled bilge that pretends to inform but rather dumbs down and brainwashes so many.
My third point is that if you can take your blinkers off and do a little of your own investigation there are plenty of people challenging the status quo of perceived journalistic norms, and doing a whole lot better on budgets that are a fraction of the ever bloated BBC. So back to the McCanns as they make a good example of just how many have been spoon fed a narrative that not only beggers belief but demonstrates just how in bed the BBC are, with the Government, Police and anyone who can take their license fee away. Finally I acknowledge there is also plenty of conspiracy garbage online and some well meaning people who just copy and paste other's misinformation (sound familiar?). However a couple of individuals who have earned my respect in recent times are Shaun Attwood whose interviews are so informative. Secondly we have his interviewee Sonia Poulton and two of her videos referenced in the interview.
This tells a very different story from the MSM and as I say in the title also raises so many unanswered questions, especially from Mr & Mrs McCann.
