When News Corporation, the parent company of book publisher HarperCollins and the Fox network, canceled publication of the O.J. Simpson murder book and television special “If I Did It,” chairman Rupert Murdoch issued a statement saying: “I and senior management agree with the American public that this was an ill-considered project. We are sorry for any pain that this has caused the families of Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown Simpson.”

Since Murdoch has shown that he can be sensitive to the victims of murder, and their families, he should reconsider his decision to publish through HarperCollins the book, Undergound: My Life with SDS and the Weathermen, by Weather Underground terrorist Mark Rudd. Like Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, Rudd was a member of the Cuban-trained Communist gang that waged violence and murder in the United States during the 1960s and 1970s. In the book Rudd talks with pride of his involvement in terrorist acts, including the planned bombing of a servicemen’s dance at Fort Dix, where hundreds of military personnel and their wives and girlfriends could have been injured or killed. He says in the book that our U.S. military personnel deserved a “taste” of what the Army had been doing during the Vietnam War.
