At least this Editor, Martin Townsend, at the Sunday Express has recognized that the press has assisted in giving Markles a platform to spew abuse.

“I am not such a hypocrite to suggest that we journalists haven't played our part in stoking it up....... no father should treat a daughter like this, particularly at the life-changing moment her married life has just begun.”

We need more editors and journalists to speak out as Martin Townsend has. We need these papers to start calling the kettle black and putting the real and truthful perspectives on Thomas Markle, Sr.'s words and actions rather than treating them as the latest "scoop" or "scandal" or "desperate pleadings" that they have been so far. They need to put integrity above clicks.

Its these papers themselves that can bring an end to all of this simply by refusing to play into the Markles and their bleatings of self righteousness and entitlement. If the media were to all start portraying these people as they really are by what can only be termed as bad publicity, the Markles would soon learn to slither away into obscurity instead of bringing even more disdain down on their heads.

If the Markles no longer have a way to contact Meghan, KP, anyone of worth in the UK and any media outlets, the only people they have left to complain and whine to is each other.

Perhaps the tide is already turning. I sincerely hope so.

They just saying what majority have already expressed. They got their use out of the Markles but now the summer break is over and they need to start focusing on the royals returning to work. I am glad they acknowledged they egged the Markles on and recognize how abusive they are. They might have ignored it for the sake of the story but it has reached a level where it is hard to anymore. I have noticed in the last couple of weeks a lot of the royal media have begun to distance themselves from the Markle covereage.

While it’s all good for him to say that, he should really take a look at the headline that covered their paper their weekend regarding Tom Markle. How about they start putting their mouth where their cover is?

The Express editor is joking right? Yes he acknowledges the media has egged on the Markle vampires but today's headline shows the tabloids want it both ways.

The media is turning on the Markles because it invested thousands of dollars in them, Dad particularly, to reconnect with Meghan so they can be their informants on the royals. They got nothing so they are throwing them under the bus. To regain its investments the press is going to start printing dirt on THEM. What karma.

It’s been a preventable mess all around. It’s gone on for far too long than it should’ve.

I've been saying this from day 1. The press plays a large role in allowing this side shoe for continuing as long as it has.

The tabloid media has always been known to be very fickle. Build people up only to tear them down again has been done over and over again. I always suspected this was the MO in the first place. Get what you want from the non entities that are the e(strange)d family, build them up to be almost household names then the process starts of tearing them down to size again. Let's face it. The Markles as far as being "newsworthy" just aren't sustainable.

The Markles were hopefully the flavor of the Summer of 2018 but the summer is just about done with and time to move on to other things and other stories and other people.

They don't call it the silly season for nothing.

The fact is, much of the public has become fed up with the Markle trio and the complicit tabloids. The media has recognized that the story has more than reached the end so they are backing away from it, especially since some of them had a hand in it reaching the point it did.

They are not doing this because any of them suddenly realized the error of their ways, it is purely pragmatic.

If the issues arenít personally addressed, itís going to continue. It may die down for a minute, but itís not really going anywhere.

So how do you see it being personally addressed to a satisfactory solution and by whom? Its one thing to give an opinion on what should be done but it also helps to define the how it should be done.

It won't go anywhere because the Markles don't want it to. That is the simple fact. But if the media don't play into their crap then they will eventually fade into the background of irrelevance.

It is good they are calling out the abuse for what it is. I will give them credit for that. It makes it hard for the Markles to continue on when people are putting those labels on their actions.

I fully expect them to have comments on every little thing Meghan does because that is what they do but overall I feel most don't care including the press who cover them. They looking out for themselves and the bottom line is Markles are becoming bad business. They are protecting themselves more than anything.

Well stated Madame Verseau. IMHO that statement was just a token acknowledgement of the press' behavior and actions. Mr. Townsend like his peers knows full well that the new Duchess of Sussex is their latest summertime pot of gold. They never had any intention of staying silent on the Markles. Sadly Meghan's just the latest in a series of them: Diana, Sarah, Catherine, Camilla etc..

Correct me if I'm wrong but it seems lately that Jr. has been the best behaved at least in terms of public tantrums.

Optimism is great and I hope some of this mess will fade into the background. I just know there’s more to come just as soon as that major baby announcement comes. All hell is going to break loose, if this current state of affairs continue.

The media should stop covering the Markles, but they will continue to do so, just as long as the Markle saga marches on.

It is already fading away. I don't expect it to completely go away. It never will because they will never stop talking but people are clearly caring less and less. So what they will whine when Meghan announces a pregnancy? We all know it will happen. It is old news before it even happened. The Markles are annoying but in the grand scheme of things their "scandal" isn't even top 20 of royal drama. Once they are all fully back to work they will be drowned out. We saw it happened plenty before they went on break.

How in the world is all hell going to break loose? Should the time come that Harry and Meghan announce a pregnancy or any other milestone in their lives, it will be shared as happy news by everybody. Harry and Meghan will continue on with their public and private lives

The tide has turned re the Markles, and tbh, I don't care why the press has turned on them, I'm just happy they have. There's no need for Meghan to arrange a meeting with her father, unless she WANTS to, for her personal reasons, and unless she feels comfortable doing so. Once the baby announcement comes, and IF the Markles rear their loud heads again, it won't get the same traction.

If the media declines to participate in the circus, twitter alone from Samantha is not going to have the same impact. And most of the public is weary of the drama.
