Pssst! Wanna See David Aaronovitch’s Pictures Of Dying Princess Diana?

by | 29th, May 2007

CHANNEL 4 is to broadcast images of Princess Diana in that Mercedes after that accident. Anorak knows it all to be part of a road safety drive – Belt up and don’t be like Diana. Channel 4 says the programme will show what really happened. The Mail is shocked, sickened, saddened, outraged etc.

David Aaronovitch writes:

OK, let’s give up again. The Mail is famed for its partly confected “stormover” stories and its constant tone of outrage, and here again the paper has exaggerated for effect. But the idea that, in the wake of the 800-page Stevens report, the world somehow journalistically requires broadcast pictures of the crashed Merc and a lengthy recapitulation of the accident, is somehow ludicrous. One knows, even as he speaks, that the Channel 4 man is trying to sell you a fib. Psst! You wanna see my smash-up pictures? Very educational! Very exciting!

Wonder what music they’ll play to go with the images?
