4. O.J. Simpson
In 2006, Fox scuttled plans for a televised two-part interview with O.J. after:
a) Network affiliates threatened not to air it.
b) Rupert Murdoch evolved a conscience.
c) The world rebelled.
d) Charles Manson became available.
Fox promoted its special on O.J.'s book, If I Did It, by saying:
a) "O.J. Simpson, in his own words, tells for the first time how he would have committed the murders if he were the one responsible for the crimes."
b) "You think we're evil? Wait'll you see this!"
c) "Why is everybody so pissed about this? Nobody minded when we interviewed Dick Cheney."
d) "O.J.'s back, and the knife cuts both ways! An all-new O.J. Blood-of-the-Slasher Confessional, after Pardon My Feces, tonight on Fox!"
