Mithran Samuel takes a dim view of the behaviour of the MSM in the Khyra Ishaq case. Well, not all the MSM - the 'Guardian' and 'Independant' get off scot-free, though they had similar reports. No, it's that old favourite, the 'Daily Mail' and its readers than get the wrath of Samuel:
This much we know: that Khyra died at hospital over the weekend and the cause of death is as yet unknown; and that two people have appeared in court charged with neglect. They are named as Angela Gordon, 33, and Junaid Abuhamza, 29, and are believed to be Khyra's mother and step-father.You don't think it's a little rich whining about other people's speculation and jumping the gun after Orkney, Cleveland and Rochdale, do you, Mithran..?
Beyond this point begins the speculation in today's press: that she died of starvation (unproven, ahead of the postmortem); that Khyra and her siblings were taken out of school several weeks ago and then received a visit from "an educational social worker" and that no follow-up visits took place.
