In the latest incidents of Internet news sites one-upping conventional TV news programs, the TMZ gossip site on Sunday posted photographs of Anna Nicole Smith's refrigerator in the Bahamas, taken after she died, showing bottles of the drug methadone on the shelves. The photograph could help explain why the Broward County, FL medical examiner failed to find evidence of drug capsules in Smith's body -- since methadone is ordinarily taken in liquid form. Meanwhile, the London Mail on Sunday ran video on its website (www.mailonsunday.co.uk/skydiver) of a two-minute video taken by skydiver Michael Holmes with a helmet camera as he fell 12,000 feet when his parachutes failed to deploy. Holmes survived with only a punctured lung and a broken ankle. "It is surely the most astonishing video footage ever shown on the Internet and will be available only our website," the newspaper boasted.
