Fox News just broke in that OJ has been released on bail:
“BREAKING NEWS …ATTORNEY: SIMPSON WILL RETURN TO HOME IN FLORIDA”
…this is un@#$%^&*believeable. the coverage could not be thicker if it were the assasination of George Bush. this is insane…choppers, reporters on all 4 sides of the building. national anchors. local anchors. ex-judges, prosecuters and defense attorneys.”experts” old and new picking up paychecks. Mark Fuhrman, Marcia Clark, Chris Darden all weigh in. waiting for Fred Goldman. local feeds. archive footage.
uh-oh, we now have video of OJ, “literally walking out” as it is described, of the Courthouse.
actual quotes- or damn close- of what I am hearing….
This question was just asked by an anchor to an “expert”…
“OJ appears to be heading to his bail bondsman- your reaction?”
“…it looks like he’s on the freeway, Bob…does that mean he has by-passed his bail bondsman and may be heading to the airport?”
“… is the potential jury pool being tainted by the media coverage, Mark (Fuhrman)?”
“…standby, Mark, we have Miranda who actually saw OJ leaving the jail and get into the car…”
“…Miranda did you get any sense where they might be heading? maybe to The Palms to pick up some things he left there?”
“…hmmmmm, we are only speculating at this time”
(ALL THIS IS BEING SAID WITH A BREAKING NEWS SENSE OF TENSION AND URGENCY)
“…anybody have any info on where OJ is heading? anybody? (silence).. okay one of our producers says they are heading to the airport…”
“…wait, we have Adam at The Palms…Adam has confirmed OJ will be meeting his bail bondsman there”
(and there was this exchange a minute later…. )
“…we’re trying to get video of OJ entering or leaving The Palms”
“…Barry, do we have OJ’s friend Tom Mezerro (sp)? Tom, are you watching this?”
Anchor: “…have you talked to OJ on the phone, Tom? Can you call OJ and get him on the phone? we just want to know how he is doing…“
Tom:”…of course I can’t do that, and I challenge Mark Fuhrman to a one on one on TV”
Fuhrman: “Shut up, Tom, you’re a fool”
Tom: “well you’re not a detective, you planted evidence…”
Fuhrman” “…you’re a fool”
We are comedy. We are tragedy. The human condition. I expect a chopper’s eye view of some random white Bronco any minute now.
