BAD IDEA, GRACEFUL SURRENDER:

Under Pressure, News Corp. Pulls Simpson Project (BILL CARTER and EDWARD WYATT, 11/21/06, NY Times)

Bowing to intense pressure from both outside and inside the company, the News Corporation yesterday canceled its plans to publish a book and broadcast an interview with O. J. Simpson in which he was to give an account of how he might have murdered his former wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald L. Goldman. [...]

“I and senior management agree with the American public that this was an ill-considered project,” Mr. Murdoch said. “We are sorry for any pain this has caused the families of Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown Simpson.”

Yes, bad idea. Why should OJ profit after doing irrepairable damage to the Brown and Goldman families? Imagine how they felt after learning of this heartless scheme to put OJ on the National stage again?

Since OJ can't profit from the crime (he was found guilty in the civil suit), I read he made a deal with his sister-in-law to split the profits. It must really be galling that he can't make a dime off this grisly affair.
