I guess with 20,000 pages of information released by the police, it was only a matter of time before we were saturated once again with snippets of sensationalised news.


There’s a sighting in Amsterdam of a girl who said she was called Maddie, that she was taken away while on holiday and that the woman she was with isn’t her mother.

Sounds almost too good to be true doesn’t it, and the CCTV pictures, it doesn’t look much like her either which makes the headline “I chatted to Maddie” at best an exaggeration.


Next up is CCTV pictures the day after she went missing in a petrol station just outside the town she magically vanished off the face of the planet.

It was shown to the McCanns who said it wasn’t their daughter.

So that’s nothing special either is it, the fact it wasn’t made public is irrelevant.


Then there is the news that the mother sent a letter to police.

I’ve always been amazed that the McCann’s had a spokesman. What the…? Well anyway, he said that it was “tragic” that this kind of evidence has only now been issued. Why? What possible use could it have been to anyone? Other than alert the people, even it was Maddie involved.

These are just three stories from the press today. I really don’t see what the fuss is about. It must be quiet news day at the Daily Mail, so taking minor things and blowing them out of all proportion the news apparently.

This media frenzy is sickening, and I lost any interest in it a long, long time ago. Now I’m just bemused on how much longer this is going to be padded out for!
