As they say.
Yes day in and day out we have seen them, all bravado on twitter begging for their chance to tell people what they think, if only people gave them a chance, instead of blocking them.
Yes they have invaded twitter, forums and blogs and condemned Carter-Ruck and the way they have helped the McCann family, but when push came to shove they bottled it.
Carter-Ruck started a blog and their first entry was about the Leveson Inquiry and the evidence that the McCanns gave (Link).
I tweeted the link yesterday on twitter and have sat back and watched to see who was brave enough to post a comment.
When I posted that tweet at 12.53 pm on the 30th November 2011 there was not a single comment. By the way Isobel Hudson it is a brilliant blog piece.
Only three people have commented on this article one comment was posted at 1.21pm on the 30th November 2011 when Brit said:
How did these diaries find there way from the Portuguese police into the Portuguese media and later to the NOTW.
This should be investigated and made known.
Followed by two further comments one at 6.04 pm, 30th November 2011 when Jen said:
The trouble is that no matter how many times the press admit they lied and made up stories in order to increase revenue, those that swallowed the lies are refusing to budge. Either through ignorance or the need to hate someone, they refuse to give up their stalking and harassment. The media cannot undo that damage. Only by regulating the internet and applying harassment and stalking laws more rigorously can the damage be rectified.
And the other at 8.53pm on the 30th November 2011 when C4 said:
Brit, I don’t think you need two guess’s as to who this was.
Someone had a habit of leaving things on desks for journo’s to copy.
I have even put up a tweet this morning at 8.10 am to see if there would be any takers who would practise what they preached.
All those that have mouthed off about Carter-Ruck on twitter, forums and blogs about the McCanns must have seen the blog entry or at least my tweet as it is on the #McCann tag and #Leveson tag on twitter and other forums which I know for a fact they read. Yet not one of them has had the balls to post a comment and make their opinion known on that comments section.
Not one of them has had the courage of their convictions despite all their bravado of saying ‘I would tell them’ along with ‘I am not scared of Carter Ruck’ etc etc etc. Well it seems to me they are frightened of Carter Ruck, otherwise they would have voiced their opinions, wouldn’t you agree?
Funny how these people can troll the Official Find Madeleine Facebook page, spend countless hours on twitter, forums and blogs vilifying the family of a missing child, yet when given the golden opportunity of actually saying something direct to the engineer and not the the oil rag , they don’t.
Could it be that all the time they are on someone else’s platform spouting their venom they feel safe. Again that is the sign of cowards if they haven’t got the courage of their convictions, wouldn’t you agree?
It rather does speak a lot about the anti-McCann tribe doesn’t it? All mouth and no trousers as my mum would say or all tweet and no action in this case.
Yes you got that correct C4, it really doesn’t take a lot of guessing, but the burning question is this.
A judge ordered the copies to be destroyed, yet it seems they were not as Kate’s diary appeared in CdeM on the 28th July 2008.
The McCann family under oath, told the world things that many of us have not heard before of how bad their lives were with press intrusion. And how scared their children were at times.
Jen that is the danger, those lies and made up headlines are still to this day being peddled as fact and people are still believing them. Even e-books are being produced all based on made up headlines and a thesis that has no grounds and still these people refuse to retract what they have written and apologise ,when the proof is shown that their research is flawed.
Nobody wants to see such stringent regulation of the internet but I think maybe it has come to a point that it might be required.
The internet is a powerful tool, but unfortunately in this case, it has been used and abused by some in order to abuse and accuse others.
Of course I am awaiting the counter argument that they did leave a comment but Carter-Ruck refused to publish it, but I won’t be believing that for one second without proof. Which can easily be achieved by providing screeenshots, like I have above.
