Tonight they are going to show pictures of Princess Diana, minutes before she died. Now, how come they are willing to show that on American tv when everyone kicks up a stink because Janet Jackson shows her tit at the Superbowl - something wrong there.

I bet they wouldn't show pictures of the US soldiers murdered and mutilated in Iraq either.

Because, my dear Bob, the media is full of sick individuals who get their jollies watching things like seeing a person before they died but get all huffy when they see a boob. Like nobody's seen a boob before?

It all comes down to time, Bob.

The Princes Di story will be featured on a programme called 48 Hours Investigates, and it will air at 10pm.

According to the FCC, it is okay to televise adult oriented material from 10pm, and onwards.

This is where the difference of the Janet fiasco, and this programme comes down.

The boob incident happened during late afternoon viewing, a time when kids are in front of the nanny, sorry, television. Superbowl is known to be a grand family event, and with that incident this is when this whole 'indecency witch hunt' began.

I don't know if CBS will actually show the accident, the bodies, or the autopsies. However, they should be careful about what they air even after this whole incident. Kids are still up even after 10pm, and the parents shouldn't place them in front of the surrogate parent, errm television, sorry.

Here is the info from the site.

I agree Matt, but as long is there a consipiracy theory, the end is a long way away.

I just tried to watch it, but it's too freaky and upsetting. Particularly because this Erin Moriarty character reporting the thing looks like an evil skeleton.

Is this the forum for most overrated, overexposed "beautiful" celebrities? Because Princess Dead gets my vote.

I posted this in the baer thread. I posted here just in case none of you peeked into that thread.

I saw the programme, CBS discussed the French trial of the death of Diana. Supposedly the paparrazi were the cause of the death of Diana, Dodi, and Henri Paul.

However, the French court came to the conclusion that the paparazzi, and the fellow in the white Fiat Uno weren't the ones that caused the crash. It was Henri Paul that caused it, because his blood had a high count of alcohol.

CBS came to the conclusion that Dodi Al Fayed's father has part of the fault, Dodi, and Henri as well. This contradicts what Mohammed Al Fayed (the father of Dodi) has been saying all along about MI 6 having some sort of role in the death of Diana.

About the chap in the Fiat Uno that supposedly disappeared. He was found dead in his car (not the Fiat), it was concluded as a suicide. I don't remember why he commited suicide though.

Still, the majority of the programme exposed Diana's lovers, and that Dodi was never Diana's lover, but a friend. Supposedly Diana had a boyfriend, a Pakistani cardiologist by the name of Kahn. He and Diana wanted to get married, but Kahn's parents didn't approve of Diana because she was English, and not Muslim. So Kahn felt obligated to end the relationship with Diana, and he did. She was furious, so she found Dodi, went to France (I think), hired a photographer, and that's when the whole "Diana and Dodi" hoopla began, just to get back at Kahn. It didn't seem to work though, I recall.

When Diana died, Kahn was there in the funeral in Westminster Abbey.

About the photo, CBS showed a photo of Diana trapped in the car. According to the French medic that was in the scene, she was unconcious and still alive. The picture showed Diana's head (still attached to her body mind you, not being morbid or anything) with blood trinkling from her left temple. However, this photo was shown in black and white. I assume that there is a print in colour, but to lessen the morbid factor, they showed it black and white. The other pictures and footage were the ones that we might've seen before like the totalled car, and the survailance tape of the last moments of Henri, Dodi and Diana.

Overall, it was interesting. It wasn't that distasteful at all.

But there must be something wrong when even the Mirror editor says that they would never dream of printing it...
