The McCanns' plight
- 31 May 07, 01:18 PM
It's been four weeks since Madeleine McCann went missing in Portugal.
Her parents have cooperated heavily with the media to keep her in the public eye in the hope of finding her. Yesterday Gerry and Kate McCann met the Pope. Later this week they will travel to Madrid.
Everyone will sympathise with the McCanns’ plight. But some are beginning to feel uneasy about their campaign and the coverage it is getting. Is the media right to continue to give their story such prominence? And is the intervention of figures like Gordon Brown, David Beckham and the Pope appropriate?
