FOX Sinks to New Low

leave a comment »

When I heard that acquitted alleged murderer O.J. Simpson was planning to do an interview on the FOX network entitled “If I Did It,” I honestly thought some tabloid was spreading a tasteless internet rumor. No one with a smidgen of brain cell matter would ever agree to such a thing.

Well…

I guess I was wrong. It appears that FOX is indeed airing a two-part interview later this month in which Simpson reveals how he would have killed Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman if in fact he was the murderer.

Ah, the power of a little conditional conjunction.

While many who believe that Simpson got away with murder and loath his latest move, I have just as much contempt for the practices of a network that claims to be “fair and balanced” and that points to their commitment to sound moral values and responsibility in reporting.

The bottom line is money, money, money. In addition to airing the interview, Judith Regan is also publishing the book also entitled “If I Did It.” The almighty dollar makes all of us do stupid things. I would hope that FOX would reconsider this publicity stunt and that Simpson will respect his children enough to repudiate the whole thing.

One can only hope.
