That was true in a lot of places, including on here to some extent. She was a racist, pig thick moron but suddenly was beatified because she was dying of cancer.
Her death was tragic; no 27 year old should die of cancer, and I am sure her sons miss her every day, but that doesn't change the fact that she was a nasty bully with very few redeeming qualities (all IMHO of course).

The power of the press maybe... the easily influenced going with the majority and agreeing with the press
