Rupert Murdoch yields to plaintive wails

Newscorp. chairman confesses to ill-considered idea in the first degree and cancels publication of the O.J. Simpson “psuedo-memoir” called If I Did It.


“I and senior management agree with the American public that this was an ill-considered project,” Mr. Murdoch said in a statement.

Judith Regan, psuedo-publisher of the book — I mean, pubisher of the psuedo-memor — is not quoted in the statement. Perhaps she’s working on a sequel psuedo-memoir by O.J. called, “The Glove Fits, II: If I Were Going to Murder Rupert Murdoch, Here’s How I’d do It.”
