Washington Post: O.J. Deal Leaves Sour Taste in Many Mouths. The two-part, two-hour TV interview is scheduled to be aired on the Fox network Nov. 27 and 29 and was conducted by hard-charging and controversial publisher Judith Regan. The show will run before the Nov. 30 release date of Simpson’s pseudo-confessional tome, “If I Did It,” a book published by ReganBooks, a division of HarperCollins, which is owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp.
Why is the heat mostly on Murdoch’s employees, and not the boss?
Look. Murdoch had to know about the book in the first place. And if he didn’t know that the potential-blockbuster TV “interview” — in reality, a two-hour commercial for the book — was being done by another of his subsidiaries, he’s not nearly in charge of his own empire. Which defies probability, if not reality.
O.J. SImpson is beyond despicable. Judith Regan has no shame.
But let’s put the responsibility for the current outrage where it belongs, with Rupert Murdoch and his greed.
