Some Fox Affiliates Refuse to Run O.J. Interview
Posted on November 20, 2006Aat least nine Fox affiliates are refusing the broadcast the controversial O.J. Simpson interview set to run Nov. 27th and 29th. O.J. will discuss his book, If I Did It (Regan Books), and talk about his wife's murder during the interview. The special contains two parts.
CBC.ca reports that at least two small television chains says they don't think the program serves the public interest. CBC says Fox has 200 tv affiliates so the bulk of the tv station plan to run the interview. The shocking book from O.J. Simpson about how he hypothetically would have killed his wife -- if he had been the murderer -- has been one of the major media stories of the past week.
Update: The book and interview have both been canceled by News Corp.
