The OJ Simpson book If I Did It has been cancelled by the Fox Corporation. Murdoch said: ‘I and senior management agree with the American public that this was an ill-considered project. We are sorry for any pain this has caused the families of Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown Simpson.’ Most booksellers were sold this title blindly, meaning that we were not told the author or title at the time we had to buy it. I guarantee my store will never buy another book where we’re not sure of this information. I hope that Harper Collins and Judith Regan learn something from this.
I, too, was relieved to know the public had no appetite for Simpson capitalizing on his notoriety.
