I Hope He Hypothetically Gets Hit by a Bus. A.K.A.: More Reasons Not to Watch the Fox Network.

This breaks my heart. O.J. Simpson has written a book about how events would have unfolded had he hypothetically killed his wife Nicole and her friend, Ron Goldman. How is it possible that this man is being allowed to financially benefit from his wife's murder? What the hell is wrong with Judith Regan of ReganBooks? With its parent company, HarperCollins? "If I Did It." Yeah. Right.

Whatever you do, DON'T WATCH THIS FOX NETWORK INTERVIEW. Don't give your rubber stamp of approval for this type of behavior. DO NOT BUY THIS MAN'S BOOK. Instead, give your $16.47 to the Nicole Brown Foundation or a local women's shelter to support the fight against domestic abuse. Let's turn this slimy, pathetic, and obscene bid for media attention and financial gain into an opportunity to help some of the most vulnerable, wounded, and at-risk members of our society: battered women.

I don't know what I should be most offended by: that he wrote the book, that someone published the book, or that the media machine is so corrupt that a news program would have the head of a publishing house that is owned by the same company as they are conduct an interview of one of her authors in a completely shameless act of self-promotion. So much for journalism (not to mention taste).

I caught a snippet about this last night on Fox News, and it should be made clear that the Fox Television Network is separate from Fox News (at least that's what the guy on Fox News said). The commentator on Fox News was speaking strongly against anyone watching this show or buying this book, and I certainly agree. I fear, however, that people will watch it the same way they drive by a terrible wreck and crane their necks to see the blood and gore. Sad but true.

Thanks for pointing that out. I was completely under the impression that the interview was on Fox News, not only from here but from an article I read today. That makes more sense — I completely expect such depravity from Fox the network. It's still ridiculous to have your editor interview you.

Yup, total sweeps stunt.

Judith Regan's side:

Not sure how to take this... but wow.
