Could OJ's book still go public?

by Adam Finley, posted Jan 1st 2007 7:01PM

oj simpsonCiting sources close to OJ Simpson, Time is reporting that certain publication rights from his book, If I Did It, Here's How it Happened, could revert back to him before next Christmas. That means the book may still see the light of day, somewhere. Several European publishers have expressed an interest in the book, a "fictional" account of how Simpson would have committed the murders he was accused of had he actually done it. If the book ever gets published, here or abroad, Simpson is welcome to use this hypothetical blurb, written in the spirit of the book, based on what I would have said had I actually read it:

Upon opening Simpson's book, I was immediately stricken with dozens of oozing boils on the inside of my mouth, and my genitals caught on fire. Everyone I loaned it to experienced the same results. -- Adam Finley, TV Squad

The book was set to be published by Reagan Books, which is owned by News Corp, and an interview was also planned for FOX, also owned by News Corp. Rupert Murdoch pulled the plug on the interview after a public outcry, which seems to me kind of like donating to Jerry's Kids after punching a handicapped child in the face.

Meanwhile, Fred Goldman, father of the late Ron Goldman, is fighting to have all rights from the book given to him.

HAHA I AM SO BUYING THIS BOOK WHEN IT COMES OUT!!! OR just read it in the bookstore in 20 mins...yay for photoreading!

We should all take this time and reflect and ask ourselves..."Where was I when I found out OJ 'didn't do it'"

I still remember that white bronco on the news...aaahhh memories...

Why prevent the story from being told? I just want to see it done in a way that prevents any profit from going to OJ.

Don't want to know the story? Don't read the book or watch the movie that you know will be made. I sure won't.

I would hope that the stigma of being the publisher that stoops this low would be enough to keep this story from seeing the light of the day.
