I will just post it as a I found it, but this is but a tiny fraction of what is simply a most deplorable list of shame.
I've just popped back to say that if you have never visited Winnowing the News, you have quite a surprise coming your way.
Goncalo Amaral - Fired, Sacked, Kicked-off, Booted etc.
Posted by Winnower on 3/01/2010
In keeping with the excellent *balanced* reporting the media has given the McCann case...here is a list of examples of the headlines related to Goncalo Amaral - describing his transfer from the Madeleine case in one or more of the following terms: "FIRED, SACKED, BOOTED-OUT, KICKED-OFF, AXED" (etc.)
I have studied these as I've compiled the lists, and must admit that there has been absolutely NO evidence of unbiased reporting in the case of Madeleine McCann. It is, in my opinion, an insult to the British public that journalists do not have enough respect for their readers to stick to the facts and to avoid sensationalism or spin. Apparently ethics no longer exist in the news media. (Thank God for the Internet.)
