Here We Go Again - The News Media is Creating the News - OJ gets paroled

Back in 1994, we experience the "Trial of the Century" as OJ Simpson faced charges of murdering his ex-wife and her friend.  This dominated the headlines for weeks if not months as he was acquitted of criminal charges, but found liable in civil litigation.

Yesterday, there was a parole hearing and all the news outlets stopped their regular programming to report this.  OJ was granted parole and will be released from prison soon.  Hopefully, he'll get his life together.  I also expect the Goldman family to get money that he never paid after his civil suit.

There are numerous parole hearings all the time, but since OJ Simpson is a celebrity, he gets all this media attention.  It is just hard to ignore.
