Retro Friday: O.J.'s White Bronco Chase, 15 Years Later
Yes, believe it or not, it's been 15 years since that day when viewers around the country were glued to their screens, wondering what would become of O.J. Simpson. It's wild to think that he now sits behind bars... but not for those 1994 murders.
I was an intern at Newsweek in New York that summer; I remember being glued to the TV in the Business section editor's office, watching along with everyone else. O.J. was obviously the cover of the magazine that week; it became an ongoing debate, how many weeks would O.J. wind up on front? We also watched as the competition, Time, took its lumps for artificially darkening the mug shot of Simpson.
Where did all of you catch the O.J. chase?
