There's another nauseating postscript to the most infamous murder case of the twentieth century. On a recent episode of Nancy Grace's prime time show on CNN, Nancy took on the issue of the current and immediate past behavior of one Orenthal James Simpson, object d' inquiétude in the Crime of the Century. Nancy was appalled that O.J. had appeared as a guest host, all expenses paid, at various strip clubs. Mr. Simpson can't find a good woman who will touch him with a ten-foot pole, but pole dancers were in abundance, and he made a spectacle of himself on video with more than one trashy woman at once.
The man who shot and is promoting videos of O.J.'s appearances at http://www.judgeoj.com/ was Nancy's guest. I couldn't help but comment...
NANCY GRACE, HOST: Tonight: Over 10 years later O.J. Simpson back in the headlines, hours of just released video on the man many say cheated Lady Justice in the murders of his wife, Nicole Brown, and friend, Ron Goldman. See for yourself what Simpson has done or not done with his life since the murders, Simpson living like a king and not paying a nickel toward the multi-million-dollar judgment against him.
GRACE: Let`s go out to the producer of the Judge O.J. tapes. Joining us tonight, special guest Norman Pardo. Mr. Pardo, thank you for being with us.
NORMAN PARDO, PRODUCER OF NEW O.J. SIMPSON TAPES: Well, it`s nice to have me on your show....
[Nancy wants to know how the owners of these strip clubs came to have O.J. at the club.]
PARDO: Well... club owners I knew, I would call them and say, Hey, do me a favor and just have him go in and host the club, and let`s see what would -- you know, what would happen.
GRACE: Did any club owner take you up on that?
PARDO: Oh, yes. We were in almost 30 cities.
GRACE: So clubs in 30 cities allowed O.J. Simpson to come in and host.
PARDO: Oh, big companies let O.J. host!
GRACE: Like who?
[Nancy, Do you want this promoter to actually name the big companies associating themselves with O.J. Simpson? Sure you do. You can't help but ask. These dirtbags are supporting a dirtbag who owes a multi-million-dollar judgment for the cruel murders of his ex-wife and a bystander! Have these companies NO decency? Out them, Nancy, pour shame on them! They truly deserve it!]
PARDO: Oh, I don`t even know if I want to tell that on this air.
[Hm. Red flag, Nancy. Do you really want to follow up on that on the air?]
GRACE: Well, why? If they want to let him host, then they must not be ashamed of it.
PARDO: Well, I think you`d get a lot of anger.
[Red flag Number Two, Nancy. Remember the Cardinal Rule of Cross-Examination: Never, ever, EVER ask a question that you don't know the answer to~!]
GRACE: Well, I mean, if he did it, don`t you assume there`s going to be anger?
PARDO: Well, did you look at the records on who the first show was that he hosted?
[Red flag Number Three, Nancy. He's expressing surprise that you don't already know. This might not be good. Don't answer that.]
PARDO: Well, you should have figured that one out.
[Four red flags! This is getting hinky, Nancy. Show the strippers video again.]
GRACE: Well, tell me. I mean, it`s your work. Are you ashamed of it?
PARDO: It was 105.5, Clear Channel radio.
[Well, now you did it! You can't blast Clear Channel for crying out loud! That's the corporate media giant that owns TV and radio stations across the country! That's the media giant that put YOU on the radio last year with the short-lived Rapid Fire With Nancy Grace! That show you've got in your back pocket if CNN ever gets the heebie jeebies!! Think fast, now.]
GRACE: Question. You`re not ashamed of your work, are you?
[Awkward, Nancy. Asked and answered. Bad transition.... CRASH! Goes the dropped subject. You're not ashamed to share a corporate sponsor with O.J., now, are you? But really, I'm glad you got the answer. Shame on Clear Channel for descending to such trashy depths.]
