Understatement of the century:

I and senior management agree with the American public that this was an ill-considered project,” said Rupert Murdoch, News Corp. chairman, when announcing that News Corp. was withdrawing plans to publish O.J. Simpson's book 'If I Did It' and the companion interview broadcasts. here

Ya think? Assuming (just assuming, here) that O.J. was innocent as the driven snow of any harm done to his ex-wife and Ron Goldman, this book and interview would be the absolute height of tastelessness. Who but a psychopath would go on public record describing how he would 'hypothetically' murder the mother of his children? Who would voluntarily enrich someone who embarked on such a sordid project?

I can't even begin to describe how awful this plan was if you do believe O.J. got away with murder...

Mrs. W,

I'm so with you on this. What was someone thinking? At best its in poor taste. At worst its an in your face confession.

Just disgusting in my opinion.

Murdoch's statement was so ridiculous it almost made me laugh. Ill-considered? How about "lack of a soul."
