Keith Olbermann rounds up tabloid and entertainment news every night on “Keeping Tabs.”
O.J. Simpson says there were inaccuracies in his unpublished book, “If I Did It,” about how I would have done things. How would he have know that if he didn’t do those things? Simpson telling the “Palm Beach Post” that the book “made it look too much like an admission of guilt. I wasn’t happy with the hypothetical paragraphs. A ghostwriter wrote the whole thing and I OKed it, but there were a lot of inaccuracies about the case, and about how I would have done things. But I figure I’d let it go since I didn’t kill anyone.” So he didn’t do it, yet he saw inaccuracies about how he would have done it. Then, when asked about the public outrage about the book, he said, “I don’t care. I got paid just the same.”
News close to home, so to speak. Jeff Zucker is the new president and CEO of NBC Universal, confirmed today by General Electric, the parent company of NBC Universal, of which MSNBC is a part. He succeeds Bob Wright, who served 21 years in the position and will now remain as vice chairman of G.E. Mr. Zucker has spent his entire career here, moving from sports researcher to executive producer of the “Today Show,” president of NBC entertainment, and in 2005 CEO of the NBC Universal Television Group. He will now lead a media and entertainment company with annual revenues of more than $16 billion, more than $750 dollars of which is generated by Countdown. Good luck, Jeff.
