OJ’s Simpson’s Kill Fee”

OJ Simpson’s crafty Fox

RUPERT Murdoch is a very forgiving boss.

He’ll shrug off scandal. He’ll laugh off journalistic crimes. He’ll ignore breaches in social etiquette. He considers “ethics” to be a county outside London. But he does not like to be embarrassed in front of his friends or become a mockery to his colleagues on that Mister Burnsian level of power.

The fact that he gave up all those ratings and all those book sales from Judith Regan’s brainstorm, If I Did It, Here’s How It Happened, means that Regan embarrassed him greatly with her scheme to have OJ Simpson “confess” to the hypothetical murders of his children’s mother and her friend.

Her disturbed and disturbingly cynical screed in the Drudge Report in which the very savvy woman claimed she was on the side of Righteousness and that she did not pay OJ Simpson for the work was a laughable embarrassment.

Yesterday’s supposition that she may indeed have concocted the book with her ex-lover the “ghostwriter” may also have led to Murdoch’s decision to yank the book and proposed two-night television specials.

We’re sure OJ Simpson will get his “kill fee.”
