Sobbing on the GMTV sofa, Heather Mills tells how terrible the media has been to her:
How do we know if she wants any money... hmmm, perhaps because if you didn't, it's unlikely that there would be constant deal-or-no-deal meetings in court. Unless we're expected to believe that McCartney is trying to force money on Heather and she's trying to argue her way out of it?
So, there's a big court order banning Mills from "talking about her daughter", then. Only, when she's asked if Paul is trying to enforce a permanent ban on her doing media interviews, she snorts:
So, she could sell her story right now despite it being a "criminal act" if she talks about her daughter. That makes sense, then.
And then Mills just gets weird:
Ross called you a "fucking liar"? Really? When? Or are you, you know, making things up in the media? And even if the "crying amputee girls" are being bullied because of you (and are there really children who wouldn't bully kids different from themselves until Mills started divorce proceedings?), isn't there something horribly cynical about throwing them into a GMTV interview?
But that's not as low as Mills sinks: she then compares herself to the dead of Hillsborough:
She went on to say: “My plan is to change the law in the European Parliament and I will do it. I’m fed up with a specific portion of the media. Some of them are still supportive, but some of them that are abusing me. I will investigate every single one of those journalists.”
Every single one, eh? Blimey. You're going to be busy.
The Times isn't exactly quaking in its boots:
We can understand Mills being frustrated by the way the media portrays her, but this isn't the correct response. Comparing herself to, say, the McCanns - and she does - and the attempt to elevate her victimhood to martyrdom has the net result of leaving herself looking absurd.
Oddly, despite the media being so terrible, she has, you know, used it to her advantage:
Ah, but apparently, this doesn't count because she was doing it for charidee:
Um... Dancing With The Stars? Guest-hosting Larry King Live? Doing, ooh, GMTV interviews?
[UPDATE: Thanks to all the commenters who pointed out that Ross did, actually, call Mills a liar. Sorry we didn't believe you, Heather. And the Times has explained the uk.com website]
