    Hi Everyone I’m new here
    A news site reports man arrested and held in the Maddie case then yesterday it reports man is released.
    This is not reported where I can see anywhere else and notice the site sell’s pics and stories.
    Is the site making it up ?
    If so can anything be done about it?
    The report:

    Julie Etchingham’s presenting Live at Five tonight. Jeremy Thompson is now is Portugal.

    I think Anna’s emotional exhausted, she broke into tears during the 4pm hour.

    Kay is in Portugal presenting Sunrise this morning, thats why there was no Lunch time live yesterday, why they are suddenly going mad on this story a week after it all started is a wonder. Do they need to have all these presenters out there aswell as the reporters?On Thursday they hardly mentioned it, it was all Blair

    Anna doesn’t look good this morning either….

    According to the EPG, 10-12 this morning there is a special on the search of Madeline.

    I did notice yesterday how emotional anna was getting, begging the audience for help. Missed her breaking down into tears though. She has been there a week now and it must be taking its toll.

    Sky does have a very large presence there now. Andrew Wilson, Martin Brunt and that Blonde women. All reporting on it. Then Anna Botting, Kay Burley and Jeremy Thompson presenting.

    This case reminds me of one in the US in 2004 i think. A teenage girl went missing in on the island of Aruba. Fox News were all over the story for weeks, speculating about nothing as till this day she is still missing and no body has been found. Sky run the risk of doing the same…

    Jayne Secker is also in the region, probably fronting Five News’ coverage.

    I think we’re likely to see Kay on mornings, Anna on afternoons and JT on Live at Five and onwards.

    EDIT: Jayne isn’t in Portugal. Sky had a map up earlier saying that she was..

    I think Sky News was a joke today, its been going on a week and they just decide to send out the ‘celebs’ to cover it, on Thursday it was Blair from 6am to midnight and the abduction story hardly got a mention. I cant see the point of making a big thing of it all of a sudden, its not like there has been any new information.And what was the purpose of Lorna popping up for an hour?

    The reason the "heavyweights" went to Portugal just recently was because they were needed for Blair’s announcement.

    ITV pretty much done the same thing in sending Mary and Geraint. Both Mary and Kay presented from Trimdon on Thursday and was in Portugal by Friday.

    Many people are saying this story was hardly mentioned on Thursday, which isn’t really true. I remember Anna J and Martin covering this story in some detail – Anna Botting was also live from Portugal with Martin Brunt.

    I do think 3 presenters in one location is a little OTT, But i think Sky’s coverage has been pretty good. It’s times like this you see how good or bad a presenter/reporter is.. Anna Botting is pure class.

    If another major story breaks on Sunday they will be out of Portugal like a shot and Maddy McCann wont get a mention.There is no need for them to be there, they can report on it from the studio, which they have been happy to do all week
