Came across this blog posting on how Lennon was used in the British tabloids immediately after his killing.

Would be interesting to know the dates of those (cant make them out) to see how long they waited before those stories. Nowadays the papers normally have around 2 days of praise (if its a big star they like) and then its mud racking and scandal whilst monitoring their readers reaction to the news.

Very depressing. The media furore after a celebrity dies is always a bleak and nasty time to be reading the papers.
