O.J.’s Killer Book Deal

While we were enthralled by “The Chase” and “The Trial,” everything that has come since Orenthal James Simpson‘s acquittal on murder charges had the taint of despicability about it. (We’ll never forget watching Simpson joke with reporters following him on a golf course shortly after the trial: “Ooh, I really sliced that one.”)

So, leave it to Judith Regan to take the joke that is O.J. to its ultimate, sick level:

Judith Regan, whose publishing imprint ReganBooks will release Mr. Simpson’s book Nov. 30, also conducted the television interviews, which will be broadcast on Fox in two one-hour segments on Nov. 27 and Nov. 29. Both ReganBooks and Fox are owned by the News Corporation. According to a news release, the book and the TV special, which has a working title of “O.J. Simpson: If I Did It, Here’s How It Happened,” will depict Mr. Simpson describing “how he would have carried out the murders he has vehemently denied committing for over a decade.”
