Vanity Fair Interview

Post by tigger on 22.10.12 8:06

@ TB The Vanity Fair interview by Judy Bachrach - which took place in September 07 and was published in January 08.
I don't think VF was taken to court - I would think that the tapes of that interview are securely stored at VF. I do know that the McCanns were unhappy about its publication. January 08 was the month there were quite a few big deals being discussed, Oprah Winfrey, film rights and a documentary.

But here is an excerpt from the interview and the link also contains an appraisal of the interview. Well worth having a look at.
http://www.mccannfiles.com/id63.html
It is Gerry who is behind what he tells me is “the marketing … a high public awareness” of Madeleine. At his side while we talk is Clarence Mitchell, a voluble former government media analyst and BBC reporter, handpicked by Gerry to be the latest in a line of spokesmen. On October 17, Mitchell spoke at Coventry University. His topic: “Missing Madeleine McCann: The Perfect PR Campaign.” Except that it has been anything but perfect.

It has in fact been so counterproductive that, as winter approached, Portuguese attorney general Fernando Pinto Monteiro suggested that one way or another the McCanns were responsible for their child’s death. Specifically he said that if indeed Madeleine had been kidnapped, it was the carefully contrived publicity engineered by her parents that likely sealed her fate. “With the whole world having Madeleine’s photo,” he observed, any abductor would have been pushed to such a degree that “there’s a greater probability of the little girl being dead than alive.”

She told me, ‘I wish I could roll back time and go back to the day before Madeleine was abducted. I would slow down time. I would get a really good look around and have a really good think. And I’d think: Where are you? Who are you? Who is secretly watching my family? Because someone was watching my family very, very carefully. And taking notes.’ ”

‘I wish I hadn’t gone to the tapas bar. I wish I’d stayed in the apartment that night. I wish I’d stayed in the room when I checked on her five minutes longer,” Gerry recalls thinking in the days that followed his child’s disappearance.

You'd have to wonder what it was about the tapas and wine that made them so irresistible.

“there’s a greater probability of the little girl being dead than alive.”

And with this last devastating conclusion—namely that Madeleine will likely never reappear—Madeleine’s own father haltingly agrees.


This links to the above quote. The Vanity Fair interview is very useful:

The mcCann have never tried to sue VF or Julie Bachrach. I expect VF has a iron-clad contract for this interview, which I would think entailed a fee.
The McCanns were said to be very unhappy about the publication of this interview.
The interview took place in September 2007, not long after they left Portugal in a hurry and were still arguidos as indeed they still were when it was published.

@ Finn - I would expect that the rolling back of time (people watching them had actually about 10 little blond girls to choose from at the time) was all said after they were made arguidos. It would be only natural to regret the mistakes made at an earlier date that had resulted in the subsequent events.

As far as the likelyhood of abduction by paedophiles goes, Maddie was too young to fit the profile. As far as being taken by a childless family goes, Amelie would have been the prime choice.
Every single marker for the crime said to have been committed is absent.

Her VF interview and Oprah Winnie interview are two of the most stupidest things Kate did.
Effectively she's accepted money to implicate herself - own goal so to speak.

two statements for Tony.

Expresso article
 
Maria Barbosa
02 February 2008
 
Extract:
 

Unanswered Prayers Vanity Fair  published 10 January 2008

Relevant quotes from the article in Vanity Fair February 2008 issue.

“The McCanns have completely changed the way we now look for missing children—it used to be you go to the police; now it means you go to the media, to celebrities,” says a disapproving Scotland Yard specialist in abused children.

As the news industry trumpeted All Madeleine All the Time, and Barbara Walters and Oprah clamored for interviews, Kate’s elegant face grew more gaunt in each tabloid photo. Meanwhile, a British poll revealed that 48 percent of all respondents believed the couple could have been responsible for their daughter’s death. Only 20 percent considered them completely innocent.



Unanswered Prayers, published 10 January 2008

Two statements for TB:
The Portuguese Attorney General's statement above and the British poll - the exact time this was taken I don't know but I would think around August/early September 2007.

How exactly has TB influenced the opinion of the British public against the McCanns if 48 percent already believed them to be responsible for their daughters' death - a long time before TB ever published anything.
