image for Murdoch Releases Titles Considered for O.J. Simpson Book
Murdering for Dummies - A beginner's guide to cold blooded killing

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Rupert Murdoch, owner of ReganBooks, publisher of O.J. Simpson's how-I-murdered-my-wife book titled "If I Did It", has bowed to public pressure and released the titles that were first considered but later rejected for the book.

Simpson's book is being published November 30 by ReganBooks which is an imprint of Murdoch's News Corp. which also owns Fox Broadcasting and HarperCollins.

ReganBooks has insisted that their plan behind Simpson's supposedly hypothetical murder book was to extract from him a confession to murdering wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman in 1994.

Yet a HarperCollins insider said that Murdoch "should have known what kind of gory garbage ReganBooks was trying to foist on the public."

Meanwhile, appalled advertisers are running away in droves from Fox Broadcasting and its incestuous plan to run a special on the book.

ReganBooks also paid $3.5 million to Simpson for the book.

Here is a shortlist of some of the alternative titles suggested for Simpson's book:

-I Did It
-Did I Do It?
-What If I Did It?
-So What If I Did It?
-I Did It Like I Did It
-Didn't I Do It?
-So What If I Didn't Do It?
