The Knuckleheads of the Day award
Today's winners are Regan Books and the Fox television network. They get the award for the following.
LOS ANGELES (AFP) - Former American football star OJ Simpson describes in a Fox television interview "how he would have carried out" the murder of his ex-wife and her friend, which he has denied committing for more than a decade, the network said.To say this is in bad taste is an understatement. Anything for the almighty dollar. Is that what this world is coming too?
The two-part interview with Simpson, who was acquitted of the 1994 murders of his ex-wife Nicole and her friend Ron Goldman, will broadcast November 27 and 29 in a special titled "OJ Simpson: If I Did It, Here's How It Happened."
"OJ Simpson, in his own words, tells for the first time how he would have committed the murders if he were the one responsible for the crimes," Fox said.
"In the two-part event, Simpson describes how he would have carried out the murders he has vehemently denied committing for over a decade," it said.
Simpson has written a book published by Regan Books, titled "If I Did It" and due out November 30, that hypothetically describes how the murders would have been committed, Fox said. Publisher Judith Regan will conduct the television interview.
After his acquittal, Simpson was found liable for the deaths in a subsequent civil action brought by the victims' families.
For giving an unrepentant killer a forum, Fox television network and Regan Books are today's Knuckleheads of the day.
Note- OJ Simpson isn't a Knucklehead. He is a cold blooded killer.
