After a firestorm of criticism, News. Corp. said Monday that it has canceled the
O.J. Simpson book and television 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 his has caused the families of Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown Simpson."

Yay! It's too bad that these folks didn't have the common sense not to do this in the first place, though.

Wow. Thank goodness!!!

As the link doesn't work, I couldn't figure out whether or not the book was really cancelled as well.

I was hoping the book would come out and the Feds would use it as evidence to re-prosecute him under Federal law, which would allegedly circumvent the Jeopardy attached to the case.

If it has any value as evidence it doesn't have to be published and released for law enforcement to examine it. I doubt it will come to that, though.

That said... here's something that sucks: I bet he gets paid anyway.

Yeah, that's what made me really angry. I told my husband because he wasn't convicted crimenally of crime he gets to PROFIT from anything he writes, says, does, in reference to the murders.

The book/interview is/was in poor taste. I hope he DID spill stuff that the feds can use against him! You know... never mind... I can't even articulate myself within the confines of the UA on this one!

He really disgusts me. When I was a kid, like what 12? I thought he was innocent and just being framed. I really held that he was innocent until about 3 or 4 years ago. I think he is disgusting now, and am happy this was cancelled. I hate that he makes money off of being a murderer. How can people believe in the death penalty as justice when slime like him walks free?
If he was poor, he would have been deathy penalty-ized by now.

I agree.

I remember a beautiful young black woman saying, when the verdict came out, "He may have killed her but she was killin' him with alimoney. There's two sides to every story."

Wow. Like what the hell did that have to do with the price of rice in China, you know? That someone could come to that conclusion is just...gawd. No words.

Actually he owes the Brown/Goldman families something like $30 million after losing the civil case. Both families had said that they would go after any profits he made off this deal. I hope that they do get any money he has made...

This whole thing was just sick.

I know. I was so floored, and terribly saddened. Other women are incredibly important to me. I love and respect them. To hear another woman so flippantly dismiss the violent death of another.....

.....well, as you said, there are no words.

I bet the woman who said that was/is abused herself. Maybe she justified abuse because it's all she knows?

So has anyone ever seen the Chris Rock riff on '"I'm not saying he should have killed her, but I understand" to the cheers of his audience. It was the first and last time I watched a Chris Rock ANYTHING.
