Sicko of the Week: O.J. Simpson
Truthdig is sickened by the former football star and actor, whose new book has a working title of “If I Did It, Here’s How It Happened.”
For shame, O.J.: If you’re innocent, that title constitutes the apotheosis of poor taste. And if you’re guilty, it shows unbridled malice. Either way, do the world a favor and disappear again.
Wait, before you go…
Fox said Tuesday it will air a two-part interview with O.J. Simpson at month’s end in which he describes the 1994 murders of his ex-wife and her friend that he says he didn’t commit.
The interview will be conducted by editor and book publisher Judith Regan. On Nov. 30, her Regan Books will publish a book Simpson wrote with the working title, “If I Did It, Here’s How It Happened.”
Fox said Simpson’s book “hypothetically describes” how he would have committed the murders. The special will air at 9 p.m. Nov. 27 and 29 on Fox.
