Whoa..a sensible decesion from a network?

It seems Rupert Murdoch, owner of Fox TV parent company, News Corp, has pulled the plug on the OJ Simpson book and TV special. What a concept!

“I and senior management agree with the American public that this was an ill-considered project,” Murdoch said in a statement. “We are sorry for any pain this has caused the families of Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown-Simpson.”

I know I yell about censorship all the time, and how you have the ultimate power with a click of your remote, but when there are children involved…this was/is just wrong. There are people who would be directly affected by this ugly little “hypothetical” situation, and I don’t feel their pain was ever considered until people pointed out just how tasteless this whole thing was from the very inception. Glad to see taste finally won out.
