Madeleine McCann coverage: 'Cheap, cavalier opportunism'

Journalists have covered the story of Madeleine McCann’s disappearance as if it were a piece of fiction, distorting the facts and demonising the characters.

That’s according to novelist Lionel Shriver, who says the British media’s “over-the-top Maddy-mongering” is a “shameful instance of cheap, cavalier, opportunism”.

Writing in the Sunday Telegraph, Shriver says: “When journalists are slaves to a ‘good story’, they are easily enticed into monkeying with the truth to get it to function like fiction.”
