The loss of Princess Diana in a Paris car accident was a story that was made for television. News coverage of the tragedy, however, was also extensive on the Internet, which played its own role in dealing with her death. Netizens had heated discussions over the media role, with particular attention to the potential online appearance of grisly photos of the crash scene. In addition, at least one spammer exploited the event to make a buck. Now, the BBC is ramping up its online efforts to broadcast her funeral live over the Web.
