    But don't they always?

    Princess Diana knew what she was doing. She liked money and publicity and knew how to get it. But as soon as she died everyone made her out to be this amazing self-sacrificing saint who lived for charity. It's *******s, but it sells papers. The masses love a tragic heroine.
    Absolutely. I'm thoroughly ashamed to be a journalism student, I think they're all ethicless scum.

    I've had to spend three years listening to all the things a good journalist would do, just because there's no BA Hons in Becoming a writer.

    I so agree Zurich, reading columnists in the newspapers just makes me think a lot fo them are foul people

    She did charity work when she had use for it, if her reputation was remotely tarnished, she'd make another visit to see some orphans.
    Perhaps her motives weren't entirely pure, but at least she did something.

    excuse me, time to air my personal bee-in-bonnet....

    Princess Diana did not die in that drunken driving/ weird conspiracy

    Princess Diana died on the day of her divorce. The correct title is Diana, Princess of Wales. There is a difference (not that I really care what you guys say, that doesn't matter but you see it in offical write up and on memorials etc. Just damned, damned ignorant.)

    i dont think that the reaction was at all abnormal! she was an institution in this country and so many people felt that without meeting her they knew her ... to most of the public she was the Queen of Hearts, and when someone you feel close to dies, theres going to be a reaction. the fact that so many people reacted in the way that they did, just shows that they "knew" her too, she was one of their own dying ...

    dnno if that makes sense!! oops!

    Fair enough, but charity = publicity. And she didn't have to WORK for a living. She just had money, for nothing. If I had that - I'm sure I could spend my whole life helping charities too. As could we all.
    I see what you're saying, and that's fair enough, I'm sure that if we were all in that position, we'd do the same, but the point is she was in that position, and she did it. She was the one making the difference, not us, regardless of our intentions. As good as our intentions may be, and even our offerings of help, in quantity, none of it can compare to the amount she did. She really did touch so many people, and in my ignorance, I don't think I truly realised this until she had gone.
