IF the O.J. Controversy Ended

In an update to an earlier post, Fox has canceled plans to air an interview with O.J. Simpson where Simpson describes how he would have killed his ex-wife and her friend if he were the killer.  According to an AP story, "A dozen Fox affiliates had already said they would not air the two-part sweeps month special, planned for next week before the Nov. 30 publication of the book by ReganBooks. The publishing house is a HarperCollins imprint owned -- like the Fox network -- by News Corp."  I guess this means that the book will not enter general circulation, though I imagine some copies will get out and sell for big money.  I predict that we have not heard the last of this story.

Also from the AP: "For the publishing industry, the cancellation of 'If I Did It' was an astonishing end to a story like no other. Numerous books have been withdrawn over the years because of possible plagiarism, most recently Kaavya Viswanathan's 'How Opal Mehta Got Kissed, Got Wild, and Got a Life,' but a book's removal simply for objectionable content is virtually unheard of."
