FOXNews.com - News Corp. Cancels O.J. Simpson Book and TV Special - Celebrity Gossip | Entertainment News | Arts And Entertainment

In the from-the-horse's mouth department, of course.

I don't know what Judith Regan at HarperCollins Publishers was thinking. They have published some truly excellent work lately, including a seven-volume reissue of The Chronicles of Narnia. Nevertheless, if they hadn't pulled the plug on this project, I was ready to vow never to buy a HarperCollins book again.

Christopher Hitchens points out that OJ can barely read or write; therefore he did not write that silly book. Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity, both at the Fox News Channel, rebelled against the planned publication and TV special. And now, both release and airing are cancelled.

I hope that Rupert Murdoch, head of News Corporation (which owns Fox News, Fox Broadcasting, and HarperCollins) will take a lesson from this fiasco.
