It turns out that the earlier rumors about an O.J. Simpson book deal that I posted on this blog (here
) were true. The AP just confirmed
that O.J. has a deal with Judith Regan and will interviewed by the publisher on Fox at the end of this month. The book will be titled If I Did It
, and it will contain a "hypothetical" description of how O.J. would've killed his ex-wife Nicole and friend Ron Goldman.
While I can't deny that Regan is good at what she does, this decision is in such poor taste that it simply cannot be defended. And News Corp's decision to air a two-part interview on Fox is just as bad. One "media" outlet that ironically looks good in all of this is the National Enquirer, which first broke the story almost a month ago.
