THE ULTIMATE TABOO

Princess Diana's family is "shocked and sickened" by CBS's decision to broadcast pics of the dying princess on last night's 48 Hours. It was the first time a major media outlet ran photos of Diana at the scene of the Aug. 31, 1997, car crash in Paris. CBS insists the images were "placed in a journalistic context — an examination of the medical treatment given to Princess Diana just after the crash — and are in no way graphic or exploitative."
