Default How low will fox go for $$$?

"Fox will slaughter the competition the final week of the November ratings sweeps when it airs a two-hour interview in which O.J. Simpson details how he would have murdered his wife, Nicole, and Ronald Goldman more than 10 years ago.

Had he done it."

Can they sink any lower?

Are they paying him? Obviously they will sell lots of pricey adverts.

OJ has written this new book, and the publishers have paid him 3.5 MILLION to write the book. It's nothing more than a publicity stunt and it's ridiculous that anyone would give him money. And, according to the network news channels the money has been paid to OJ in such a way that it cannot be used as compensation he owes for losing the civil lawsuit. His NFL pension is protected, and moving to Florida protected additional funds. He's such a lowlife.

I see Fox News are going out of their way to say they had nothing to do with it. They say they will not be showing any clips.

I hope someone somewhere finds a way to prosecute him. I realise he can't be tried for the same crime twice...but maybe they could find some sort of loophole in the law.

I saw that too. I hadn't realised that it's going to be on Fox TV (the one that shows House and the Simpsons) and NOT Fox News. Fox News was saying that the other newspapers and television stations should cover this story as they are, that is disgust with the fact that OJ is still finding ways to earn money, without paying what he owes. What on earth is he thinking and why won't he go away?

I wonder if he says anything in the interview or book that can be used against him.

His poor children...

That's what I said...I hope they do and then throw the book at him.

Obviously doesn't care two hoots about his children.

From what I understand, the book is published by Regan publishing, which is indirectly owned my Newscorp, which owns Fox. Coincidence?

I read that, too. That publisher is known for getting people to talk and do crazy things...she seems to be able to talk people into saying and doing anything. Apparently she worked at the National Enquirer for a bit? Horrible.

I did hear that whilst double jeopardy laws mean he can't be tried again in state court, he could be charged in a federal court if he says or does something worth pursuing. I really wish the Goldman family would have won their recent lawsuit--it's not right that OJ can continue to profit.

Which is probably why he qualifies his interview with "if I had done it." The guy is a total scum bag....and it just doesn't surprise me that Fox, the station of the "moral majority" would stoop this low. Last night I saw Jay Leno call for a boycott of any company that sponsors the interview, which I think is a great idea.
