I read Torin Douglas’ piece, “Repercussions of Diana’s loss will knock media world for six” (MW September 4), and agree with much that was said.
However, Diana manipulated the press when it suited her and rejected press intrusion into her private life. Therefore, it is now very difficult for the media to respond, necessarily, in the correct fashion to her tragic death, other than to report the facts surrounding the event.
In the light of strong public opinion, the very people who buy newspapers and magazines because of Diana’s photographs, how best can the media industry respond after the funeral? It could contribute to her memorial fund by staging a photographic exhibition of her style and considerable charisma, the proceeds of which can be donated.
