Everyone is talking about O.J. Simpson’s parole hearing, and Fox News made something shocking. The network decided to bring back a face from O.J.’s murder trial in 1995. You probably remember Mark Fuhrman. In 1995, the LA police officer was the key witness against the football star. Guess who hired him now…
Fuhrman, 65, will have the responsibility to provide “contributions and analysis” during O.J.’s parole hearing, and he was hired by Fox news. We all remember how O.J.s’ defense tried to discredit him. The parole hearing will start at 10 a.m. Nevada time on Thursday.
“Throughout the day, FNC correspondents Claudia Cowan, Jonathan Hunt and Dan Springer will contribute live news updates on the hearing to FNC’s daytime and primetime programming. Additionally, FNC’s roaming correspondent-at-large Geraldo Rivera and FNC contributor and former LAPD detective Mark Fuhrman will provide contributions and analysis to FNC’s coverage,” Fox stated.
Fuhrman was invited to visit Fox in several occasions, mostly during the investigation of high-profile police incidents.
Fox News isn’t the only network that aims towards covering the upcoming hearing. At least 30 other networks will cover the parole hearing, and O.J. will “attend” the hearing through a video link from Lovelock Correctional Center. Four state commissioners will question him, and hopefully, the case will go to the next level.
ESPN and a few other networks will air O.J.’s hearing live. Is it necessary to mention that Americans are already obsessed with the hearing? It’s time to take out the old stories, because people are about to renew everything associated with the case.
David Sarosi, the coordinating producer for ESPN’s Outside the Lines, says that “the appetite for O.J. has never gone away.” Well, he is definitely right.
“The fascination has not decreased. We still don’t know the end of the O.J. story. People just can’t get enough,” explains Laurie Levenson, a Loyola Law School professor and longtime analyst of O.J.’s case.
What do you think about the upcoming hearing? How will the case develop? What’s your opinion about O.J.’s role in the whole incident? Will he spend the rest of his life in jail?
