Ns can’t think it’s been 20 years; there’s never ever been a story prefer that and CNN didn’t have any real compete then. There was Court TV yet no Fox News Channel or MSNBC. Us literally had the playing ar to ourselves.

“I’m surprised they didn’t use any footage the the night ~ the verdict, as soon as I had actually Johnnie Cochran on <‘Larry King Live’> and also OJ called in,” King says. “It was a phenomenal night, having Cochran in the studio and OJ on the phone.
