Diana 1961-1997: US voices - Politician, goddess and rebel
Sunday 07 September 1997
Shawn Sell, USA Today
8 "All that the celebrity culture teaches is a counterfeit empathy, which mistakes prurience for interest and voyeurism for a genuine human identification... Women all over the world said they had related to Diana because she was so normal. She was a tender mother and warm soul, but she was anything but normal. The Princess of Wales was the queen of surfaces, ruling over a kingdom where fame was the highest value and glamour the most cherished attribute."
Maureen Dowd, New York Times
8 "I watch as you ... take your position on CNN saying there is a market for this and you are just supplying the goods. So, let's use your argument. There are also thousands with an insatiable appetite for crack. The person who supplies that is called a dealer. If he's caught, he goes to jail."
star of the TV series ER, addressing publications that buy paparazzi photos
8 "I would ask in the memory of my daughter Jon Benet Ramsey, America's people's princess, and the beautiful people's princess of Great Britain, to ask everyone to boycott, not to buy these publications."
Patsy Ramsey, mother of the six-year-old Colorado beauty queen found murdered in her home at Christmas, speaking on CNN
8 "In my eyes, her death is a case of manslaughter caused by photographers who don't respect people's private lives. As a member of the artistic community, I think it's time to take a stand. Don't buy those magazines."
Rod Steiger, actor
8 "I watched CNN all day long on Sunday and I don't watch TV. I didn't really know how much I liked her until it happened."
Eselson Belding (a psychologist) quoted in the Philadelphia Inquirer
