A cover-up is an attempt, whether successful or not, to conceal evidence of wrong-doing, error, incompetence or other embarrassing information. The expression is usually applied to people in positions of authority who abuse their power to avoid or silence criticism or to deflect guilt of wrongdoing. Those who initiate a cover up (or their allies) may be responsible for a misdeed, a breach of trust or duty or a crime.
While the terms are often used interchangeably, cover-up involves withholding incriminatory evidence, while whitewash involves releasing misleading evidence.


MODERN USAGE
When a scandal breaks, the discovery of an attempt to cover up is often regarded as even more reprehensible than the original deeds.
The mildest case, not quite a cover-up, is simply to release news which could be embarrassing but is not important enough to guarantee attention at a time when other news is dominating the headlines, or immediately before a holiday or weekend.
Initially a cover-up may require little effort; it will be carried out by those closely involved with the misdeed. Once some hint of the hidden matter starts to become known, the cover-up gradually draws all the top leadership, at least, of an organization into complicity in covering up a misdeed or even crime that may have originally been committed by a few of its members acting independently. This may be regarded as tacit approval of that behaviour.[citation needed]
It is likely that some cover-ups are successful although by definition this cannot be confirmed. Many fail, however, as more and more people are drawn in and the possibility of exposure makes potential accomplices fearful of supporting the cover-up and as loose ends that may never normally have been noticed start to stand out. As it spreads, the cover-up itself creates yet more suspicious circumstances.
The original misdeed being covered may be relatively minor, such as the 'third-rate burglary' which started the Watergate scandal, but the cover-up adds so many additional crimes (obstruction of justice, perjury, payoffs and bribes, in some cases suspicious suicides or outright murder) that the cover-up becomes much more serious than the original crime.
Cover-ups do not necessarily require the active manipulation of facts or circumstances. Arguably the most common form of cover-up is one of non-action. It is the conscious failure to release incriminating information by a third party. This "passive cover-up" is often justified by the motive of not wanting to embarrass the culprit or expose them to criminal prosecution or even the belief that the cover-up is justified by protecting the greater community from scandal. Yet, because of the passive cover-up, the misdeed often goes undiscovered and results in harm to others ensuing from its failure to be discovered. (In Catholic Moral Theology this would be considered the Sin of omission and a Mortal sin)[citation needed]
Real cover-ups are common enough, but any event which is not completely clear is likely to give rise to a thicket of conspiracy theories alleging covering up of sometimes the most weird and unlikely conspiracies.
A cover-up need not involve wrong-doing. In a number of countries the incidence of epidemics of contagious diseases is often covered up, either because of national pride or to forestall panic. This is often counter-productive, allowing the disease to spread unchecked when precautions could be taken. AIDS and avian influenza have been covered up in the first few years of the 21st century. In 2006 China has been more open about avian flu, which has helped in dealing with an epizootic.[citation needed]
"Snowjob" is an American colloquialism for a deception or a cover-up; for example, Helen Gahagan Douglas described the Nixon Administration as "the greatest snow job in history."[1]
Reasons


People, governments or institutions may try to cover up if

  • they are dishonest enough to wish to hide things that they should not conceal (hiding information is not in itself a cover-up);
  • and they believe that they can successfully cover up the facts, either by effective concealment or using their authority and power to prevent investigation and publication;
  • and they believe that public knowledge of the facts will harm them in some way, from long jail sentences through possible loss of electoral office to mere embarrassment;
  • and they believe that the benefit of a successful cover-up outweighs the risk and harm to them of being caught covering up.

I would like to predict that another guest staying out there who was part of the wider group, will come to realise that if one goes down, they all go down and they will make a deal in return for immunity.

Reputations are a funny thing, especially where £££ is concerned.

Too much to hope that a half decent journalist asks a few simple questions, I suppose.

I take it you mean a half decent British journalist....cos Sandra Felgueiras, the decent Portuguese journalist, asked a simple question and was greeted with this indecent response from Gerry: "Ask the dogs, Sandra." bigshock

The first one, Mr Egghead, would be a better choice especially if he was scrambled...he'd get through the smallest of gaps.

 A whitewash - as with Diana and David Kelly.

I suspect that we will never discover what happened to Madeleine.

I would hope that eventually the parents concentrate on giving their two remaining children the fullest life possible.... instead of gadding off to promote their book.
