Example of BAD PRESS Heather was speaking of in 20/20 Interview #866
Oct 26, 2002 by Mike Kovacich
Well it hasn't even been 12 hours since ABC aired a new interview Barabara Walters did with Heather with Paul, and the press just keeps coming with up with ridiculous acusations - this time directed at Paul himself. Below, I have copied an article from the online Daily Record. I will comment on it first. If the event was so important to the town, why couldn't they schedule it when there is a break in his current tour. To actually expect Paul to fly from Mexico to Scotland on Friday and then immediatlely fly back to Mexico so to perform a rigorous 3 hour set on Saturday is unbelievable. Over the years this town has shown deep affection for Paul and family and have been very tight lipped as to the farms location etc. I'm sure the newspaper had trouble finding someone to say something negative against Paul. Notice the digs about the marriage and "deep rifts with the children".
Why not mention about the nearly one million fans who have cheered, danced, sang, rocked and cried with Paul throughout the tour thus far. Always something negative from these things that call themselves "newspapers". I may get sued here but I think "toiletpapers" is a better fitting name. Shame on them on the people who actually buy these rags.
Here is the article as it appears in the Daily Record:
SIR PAUL `TOO BUSY' FOR LINDA MEMORIAL Oct 26 2002
NEWLYWED Sir Paul McCartney will snub the unveiling of a statue of his late wife, Linda - even though he commissioned it.
The former Beatle says he will be too busy in Mexico to attend Friday's ceremony in Campbeltown.
Yet, ahead of Linda's memorial, Sir Paul has already unveiled a tribute to his new wife, the ex- model Heather Mills, 34.
In May, he showed off his painting of a female nude and dedicated it to her.
An angry Campbeltown local said: "For someone who is supposed to have been so devoted to Linda, and to have loved Kintyre, it is shameful. There is a lot of speculation Heather has put pressure on him not to go."
A spokesman for Sir Paul, 59, said the memorial was "a Campbeltown thing - not a McCartney family thing".
Yet it was Sir Paul, 59, who approved the £20,000 bronze effigy of Linda - who died in 1998 after battling cancer.
Sir Paul has admitted that late wife "adored" High Park Farm, where they fled after the break-up of the Beatles.
His marriage in June to the former model is said to have caused deep rifts with his children, Mary, Stella, James and step- daughter Heather.
