Emergency Celebrity Disintegration

Rupert Murdoch cancels the release of the OJ Simpson hypothetical confession novel and television interview because it offends people. Publisher Judith Regan explains that her interests in promoting the book and interview weren't actually motivated by unbridled greed and narcissism. She just wanted closure.

Michael Richards goes on Letterman with Jerry Seinfeld to apologise for his racist tyraid. The clap-happy audience laugh through the beginning of his apology (Richards speaks in a setting that has a humourless, oppressive, Communist gray background emphasising his time now being spent in purgatory). Seinfeld's publicists draw blood as they dig fingernails into palms hoping this brush with America's great shame doesn't deplete sales of any forthcoming Seinfeld DVD box sets.

Robert Altman is dead at 81.
