A Little Perspective, Please

It's impossible to avoid this story about the outrage elicited by OJ's book deal and television interview.

Well and good. It's a disgusting spectacle, and there is something creepy about OJ's attempts to exploit and profit from his infamy.

But let's just hope that all the people climbing on a moral high horse about OJ were similarly indignant when CNN aired terrorist propaganda (provided by the terrorists themselves) of an America soldier being killed by terrorists.

After all, at least it's not as if Fox is airing a broadcast of OJ actually killing Nicole Simpson and Fred Goldman. And although the Simpson trial certainly undermined Americans' faith in the legal system, it wasn't deliberately exploited by foreign adversaries -- as CNN was -- in order to undermine our national will.

So how about a little perspective?
