MCCANN WORLDWIDE EXCLUSIVE: #Shakedown reveals the inside scoop to Sunday Night’s Breakthrough! Incredible Story!

At 04:12, shortly before dawn on Thursday 13th May, bone fragments were discovered by Paulo Sousa, a Portuguese fisherman in a small, sheltered cove located between Sagres and Cabo de São Vicente [Cape St. Vincent].

The curved object was taken to a local lab for testing the same day, and preliminary results indicate a weathered rib bone of a three to five…

Hypothetically, what would be the six biggest breakthroughs imaginable in the Madeleine McCann case, if there were indeed a breakthrough?

  1. Madeleine’s remains are found.
  2. Madeleine, who’s living with another family, suddenly sees herself on television for the first time, remembers she’s Madeleine, and realizes her current family isn’t her real family.
  3. Madeleine walks up to the McCann’s front door in Rothley, Leicestershire, and says “Hi, Mom, I’m homeLet’s go get me some new shoes.”
  4. Sean and Amelie suddenly remember everything that happened the night of the abduction, abandon their beds and their home and call the police.
  5. Robert Murat confesses that he’s a pedophile and has adopted Maddie.
  6. Goncalo Amaral admits he was wrong; and that he abducted Madeleine.

Any one of these would qualify as breathlessly sensational “breakthroughs” but how many – bar one – has a snowflake’s chance in hell of actually happening?

What pray tell could the producers of Sunday Night know that nobody else in the world seems to know, not even the McCanns?  It sounds pretty damn huge!


The parents of Madeleine McCann have urged an Australian TV crew to hand over any “new evidence” to police, it is reported.

A documentary programme, due to air on Sunday, claims it has discovered a fresh lead in the high-profile case.

A family spokesman called on TV bosses to contact officers about the clues amid the claims of a “major” breakthrough.

He told the Daily Star: “If the Australian TV show contains any credible, fresh lines of inquiry they should, of course, have been given immediately to the police.”

A teaser video for Channel 7’s Sunday Night programme suggests a significant new lead in the case has been unearthed.

“There are major new developments!”

“It could be the key to the case!!”

“She may still be alive somewhere!!!”

“The breaking evidence about Madeleine McCann will be revealed exclusively on 7 Sunday Night!!!!”

Sunday Night saying it has groundbreaking, earth-shattering, jaw-dropping scoop, is akin to the National Enquirer saying they have gossip to share.  Speaking of which, remember that time the Ramseys granted an interview to the Enquirer?  Actually, wasn’t it two interviews, and then a book [immediately after settling a libel suit out of court]? The Ramseys sued the Enquirer, then granted them interviews.  Keep that in the back of your mind…


Those of you who followed the Oscar Pistorius trial will recall a “leaked” re-creation video of Oscar [seen for the first time ever on his stumps] racing towards the phantom intruder with his hand stretched out in front of him as if holding a gun.  Thanks to Sunday Night, those of us who once found Oscar hot, seriously had our bubbles burst.

Sunday Night aired this “leaked” footage, and made it appear balanced by peppering it with some clips from Oscar’s critics and Reeva’s grieving parents – just like we’ve seen clips of Goncalo Amarel and Pat Brown for tonight’s Maddie special – while the majority of the show ended up being commentary from Scott Roder, the serious-sounding American forensic specialist [hired by the wealthy Arnold Pistorius] exclaiming he believes the poor broken sod, Oscar.  Meanwhile, Oscar can be heard wailing like an opera singer in the background.

Roder just scored a fat paycheck from uncle Arnold, so yea, that pretty much seals the deal for him touting Oscar’s innocence.   To draw yet another parallel, Sunday Night likes to advertise they conduct their own investigations.  They built a replica of Oscar’s house just like CBS built a replica of the Ramsey’s house.*  Does anyone really believe a show is willing to spend millions of dollars to “investigate” a crime without any clue or any say about the outcome? With that in mind, is it really an investigation?

“He’s on his stumps, he’s vulnerable, that’s when he hears something!…”

“If you’re right, Oscar’s clearly not guilty!!”

 Although Oscar’s re-creation was filmed by his defense team prior to trial, but not ultimately used because his defense(s) and defense strategy changed like the wind, this footage magically appeared on the Australian TV show with team Pistorius reportedly scratching their heads at its terribly insensitive release.  They threatened to sue.

“A staggering breach of trust!”

Intriguingly, this show was aired precisely at the time Oscar’s defense was arguing that Oscar had to stay and fight [the intruder] because he didn’t have the capability of flight.  Although, anyone who watched that video could clearly see – the Olympic runner could run. No shit?!  Was this a gift for the prosecution?  Was it the proverbial nail in the coffin for the once-beloved champion?  Not exactly.

There was quite a buzz, and quite a stink, caused by the Pistorius’ over this program.  There was talk of lawsuits and threats of mistrials.  So, Gerrie Nel, prosecutor and master ruse-detector, didn’t touch it with a ten-foot pole. And even though the video of Oscar on his stumps was so outrageously offensive to his family, they saw to it [during his sentencing phase] that the whole world got to see a drugged-up Oscar not only remove his legs, but walk across the courtroom on stumps, wobble in place, and nearly fall over, all while crying. Gasp!

So…. Let’s get real for a moment.  Was the Sunday Night program dangled as a piece of bait?  If it was, then who was the one feeding the foul chum to the fishes?

“The physical evidence is consistent!”

Let’s shift our focus the McCanns.

“She may still be alive somewhere!”

Yesterday, Pat Brown, who’s analysed the McCann case, shared a recent email communication with the owner of a forum, expressing her disgust over her recorded words being edited for their teaser trailer.  Referring to the McCanns, Brown says…

“They’re lying and they’re concealing guilt.”

Now, this shouldn’t really come as a shock.  Brown’s been publicly vocal for a while now that she believes Madeleine is dead.  But her concern is the blatant nature in which the words were presented on TV; she’d prefer to frame that statement as “the evidence supports…” which is understandable, although, if I may be frank, it’s pretty freaking naïve (if true).  Sorry Pat, I dig your work, but come on.

I was contacted by Rahni Sadler to do an hour long interview with her on the case. Coming on the heels of the recent spate of good Australian media coverage of the case, I consented to do the interview. I was led to believe this was a one-on-one interview, an in-depth interview that would not be edited to any extent. I had no idea that I was going to be but a piece of some “explosive” documentary which was only going to include bits and pieces of what I said.

Had I known this, I would have refused the interview. I rarely do media interviews anymore that are not live interviews unless I am fairly sure that my views are going to accurately represented.

My greatest fear is that they are going to use us naysayers as dramatic bait and end the show with some “evidence” that Madeleine is alive and still has hope of being found.

Ya think?

Has Pat Brown ever watched TV?  That’s (kind of) a serious question.  Did the profiler who rarely does interviews anymore not profile the show she was being asked to participate in?  Did Brown suddenly do a back-track not wanting to get sued for a gazillion dollars like CBS?  Either way, who’s bullshitting who?

Let’s apply the same logic to the McCanns.

“She may still be alive somewhere!”


…the show has left her parents, Kate and Gerry, “angered and upset”, according to a source close to the couple.

Uh oh, the McCanns are upset.  The Sunday Night producers are clearly not on their side.


Documentary-makers are now running a 40-second teaser video using a six-year-old clip with journalist Rahni Sadler posing the offensive question.

They are also suggesting in the “landmark television event” they have secured a new interview with Kate and Gerry, which their spokesman Clarence Mitchell said today is “simply not true”.

He added: “They are hyping it for all its worth and it’s not worth anything!” [look away, look away!]

“She may still be alive somewhere!”

Mr Mitchell hit out at Channel 7’s trailer tactics despite being interviewed himself for the programme to mark the milestone 10th anniversary of Maddie’s disappearance.

Long-serving family PR Mr Mitchell hit back at the current affairs show, simply called Sunday Night, saying: “There’s nothing new in it that I’m aware of. I don’t know of new evidence neither do Kate and Gerry.”

Mitchell’s “not aware of anything new” because, apparently, that’s how the McCanns have conducted business all these years – loosey-goosey.  Right?

Did Mr. Mitchell – who agreed to be interviewed for the show – the former director of the government’s media monitoring unit, a journalist for the BBC, long-term hired gun for the McCanns, forget to do his homework, just like Ms. Brown?

After 10 years of dodging and controlling the insidious media, this slippery program outwitted them all?  M’kay.

 “There are major new developments!”

“It could be the key to the case!”

“She may still be alive somewhere!”
