Because of the realistic nature of the "news," there was a public outcry the next day, calling for regulation by the FCC.

1997 - In the year of Rawlin A Sams's passing, on August 31st, Princess Diana of Great Britain was killed when her car crashed into a pillar in the tunnel under the Pont de l'Alma bridge in Paris.
