OJ's If I Did It Book And TV Special Canceled


After a firestorm of criticism, News. Corp. said Monday that it has canceled the O.J. Simpson book and TV special "If I Did It."

"I and senior management agree with the American public that this was an ill-considered project," said Rupert Murdoch, News Corp. chairman. "We are sorry for any pain that this has caused the families of Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown Simpson."

A dozen Fox affiliates had already said they would not air the two-part sweeps month special, planned for next week before the Nov. 30 publication of the book by ReganBooks. The publishing house is a HarperCollins imprint owned - like the Fox network - by News Corp.

For anyone who wanted to know how he did it -- if he did it, I believe I have the answer based on an interview OJ gave a few years ago where he talked about Nicole.

  1. OJ believed his ex was doing drugs and set out to prove his belief by stalking her.
  2. OJ saw a "package" be exchanged for money and assuming he was witnessing a drug deal he attacked the woman endangering his children and her drug dealer.
  3. Only later did OJ learn that the "package" contained glasses left behind at a restaurant.
  4. Oops. Honest mistake.

So if he did it, it wasn't "murder" just a misunderstanding.
