As reported earlier, the-glove-doesn’t-fit O.J. Simpson was all set to have his “hypothetical” book, If I Did It, Here’s How It Happened, published along with a TV special aired, but now it looks like the spotlight has been turned, back to refreakinality.
The Fox network has pulled out of the deal & will no longer be publishing Simpson’s tell-all book, nor will they be broadcasting the two-part interview with O.J.Â The move comes after several affiliates condemned the program, saying it would be heartless to the Goldman & Brown families.
Media mogul Rupert Murdoch himself made a statement, “I and senior management agree that this was an ill-considered project.Â We are sorry for any pain that it has caused the Goldman and Brown families.”
In previews for the TV special, 59-year-old O.J. displayed a highly detailed knowledge regarding the events that led up to the 1994 murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson & her friend Ron Goldman.Â Simpson was acquitted of the double murder in 1995, but then later found guilty in a civil trial.
I generally find that quoting Bill O’Reilly is never a good idea, but here goes.Â O’Reilly stated that, “if any company sponsors the TV program, I will not buy anything that company sells â€” ever.”Â So, since we know how Bill feels about his meds, they yanked the program due to not being able to take that kind of financial loss.
What do you think- should this type of “hypothetical” TV program or book be viewed / read?
