OT: *This* Is Where We Draw The Line? [6:21 am]

I mean, I’m as glad as anyone that this project got canceled, but consider the expectations of the American viewing and reading public that got the project greenlighted in the first place. On the other hand, at least this demonstrates that there *are* still some things that we won’t stomach as entertainment — so far: Under Pressure, News Corp. Pulls Simpson Project

The decision to cancel the twin Simpson projects was greeted with widespread expressions of relief. Michael Angelos, a vice president of Pappas Telecasting Companies, which told the network Friday that its four Fox-affiliated stations did not intend to broadcast the interview, released a statement calling the network’s decision “a victory for the people who spoke out.”

The statement concluded, “This special would have benefited only O. J. Simpson, who deserves nothing but contempt, and certainly no benefit.”
