OJ: "IF I did it, here's how"

So now he's writing a book and giving a TV interview explaining how he would have done it if he did it

O.J. Simpson to discuss killings Wed Nov 15, 8:18 AM ET



LOS ANGELES - In a new TV interview and book, O.J. Simpson discusses how he would have committed the slayings of his ex-wife and her friend "if I did it."


The two-part television interview, titled "O.J. Simpson: If I Did It, Here's How It Happened," will air Nov. 27 and Nov. 29 on Fox, the TV network said Tuesday.

"O.J. 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," the network said in a statement. "In the two-part event, Simpson describes how he would have carried out the murders he has vehemently denied committing for over a decade."

"This is an interview that no one thought would ever happen. Its the definitive last chapter in the Trial of the Century," Mike Darnell, executive vice president of alternative programming for Fox, said in a statement.

The interview, conducted with book publisher Judith Regan, will air days before Simpson's new book, "If I Did It," goes on sale Nov. 30. The book "hypothetically describes how the murders would have been committed," the network said.

The book is published by ReganBooks, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers run by Regan.

Simpson, who now lives in Florida, was acquitted in a criminal trial of the 1994 killings of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ronald Goldman. Simpson was later found liable in 1997 in a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the Goldman family.

Messages left with Simpson and his attorney Yale Galanter were not returned Tuesday night.

"IF he did it"? Isn´t that a bit disturbing? Why would he even think about how he WOULD have done it? Why would we want to know?

This is the closest we'll ever get to a confession. It's disturbing to me because it seems like he's bragging about it, and of course secretly gloating he got away with murder, but he still can't avoid the thrill of the attention he'd get for telling his story. So this is how he's managing to do that without an outright confession.

This is absolutely the most disgusting thing. The Brown and Goldman families must be furious.

You would think that with the success of shows like "American Idol", "The Simpsons", and "24" Fox wouldn't have to stoop so low.

to be fair, if fox didn't buy the rights, someone else would have. they would have attempted to disguise it as a "journalistic" program, but it's the same shit.

Well that's the thing. He clearly has no class and I expect no better out of him but the $$ he's making per his contract here suggests they expect at least decent sales. That's the most disturbing thing.
