I've been muttering at the television again over the past few days, aghast at the behaviour of the media regarding the search for Madeleine McCann. I was going to post something about it, but today I saw this, which says pretty much everything I was going to say and puts it a lot better than I would have.

It's the reaction of the press to not being given information that disgusts me. I saw it during the Suffolk murder case last year, the way an unwillingness, or an inability, on the part of the police to provide information to the press is somehow equated with ineptitude.
I thought Camilla Cavendish was quite brave to write what she did in the Times, and there's another piece in today's Telegraph ( http://www.telegraph.co.uk/opinion/main.jhtml?xml=/opinion/2007/05/18/do1806.xml) which examines another aspect of it.
I didn't hear Matthew Parris - where was that?
