ABC News Pumps Up Big ‘Exclusive’ on O.J. Simpson Tapes — Then NBC Gives Them the Embarrassing Truth.

The tapes, which were once only seen by lawyers working on the case, have now been released as part of a documentary called OJ Speaks: The Hidden Tapes, shown by ABC News.More than 20 years after Nicole Brown Simpson’s brutal slaying, says she regrets not being able to save her friend amid signs of what she calls an increasingly abusive relationship with her ex-husband, football player O.J.

The startling footage shows Simpson facing awkward questions during his civil trial in 1996 that he avoided during his criminal trial by refusing to testify.The grainy footage showed a deposition Simpson gave under oath over 13 days in a 1997 civil case, and had been gathering dust in an underground storage facility for nearly two decades before being discovered by documentary film-makers. Simpson civil trial deposition tapes, set to air the same night on ABC’s “20/20.” Then NBC News revealed an embarrassing truth to its broadcast rival. Simpson. “At the end of Nicole’s life, I think she finally was at a place where she knew she had to be more vocal with what was going on and she was in trouble,” Jenner, 59, says in a new LMN documentary, The Secret Tapes of the O.J.

Simpson, 68, was controversially acquitted of murdering Miss Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman in 1995 in the case dubbed the ‘Trial of the Century’. The ABC News story flashed the headline “never before seen videos revealed” as correspondent Elizabeth Vargas launched into her introduction by telling viewers they were about to hear some of Simpson’s “chilling testimony” about his relationship with his ex-wife, Nicole, “for the first time.” NBC was quick to pounce.

Case: The Untold Story, according to ABC News. “The one thing she would tell all of us by the time, you know, it got to that level was, ‘He’s going to kill me and he’s going to get away with it.’ ” O.J., 68, was acquitted of murder in 1995, sparking a national national outcry. Jenner’s late ex-husband Robert Kardashian – the father of her now famous children Kourtney Kardashian, Kim Kardashian West, Khloé Kardashian and Rob Kardashian – worked on his defense team. “I will always feel guilty that I didn’t pay more attention and didn’t speak up when I thought anything was wrong or asked her more, ‘Do you want to talk about it?’ ” Jenner says of Nicole in the documentary. The news division had to issue an apology Friday for the erroneous claim. “We were wrongly under the impression these deposition tapes were exclusive and had not aired before at length,” an ABC News spokesperson said in a statement. “We learned this morning portions did air 15 years ago. When he was shown police photographs of Nicole with a bruised face and a cut lip, Simpson initially said: “It reflects doing a movie that we’re doing and we’re doing make-up.” Simpson replied: “I think any marks that’s on her, I take full responsibility for.

I take total responsibility.” Elsewhere during questioning, Simpson is asked about a men’s size 12 shoe print found at the scene of the murder in the victim’s blood, and while he initially denied it was his, even saying they were “ugly a** shoes”, more evidence was later shown of the star wearing the shoes nine months before. We apologize for the mistake.” The airing of the tapes, scheduled for Friday night’s edition of the news magazine “20/20″ was heavily touted in on-air promos and by Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos during Friday’s edition of “Good Morning America.” The Times also reported that ABC was airing the tapes for the first time after being in storage for nearly 20 years, based on information provided by the network and an interview with “20/20″ coanchor Elizabeth Vargas, who is scheduled to present the video and related interviews on the program. When Petrocelli brought up the shoes again, saying: “Looking at the close up of the shoes, can you believe that those were shoes that you owned at the time?” Simpson reportedly replied: “No.” Washington Post media columnist Erik Wemple blasted ABC’s egregious error in a blog post published a couple of hours after the network was called out on Twitter for the “atrocity.” “As journalistic malpractice goes, this is a misdemeanor, though an annoying one,” Wemple wrote. “News outlets — especially in the TV sector — are forever touting the thinnest exclusives, to the point that any eye-rolling media reporter learns to take a pass on harrumphing about most such atrocities.” “Yet there is an important factual matter here,” Wemple added, “in that ABC News marveled before its viewers about how these tapes just managed to fade into oblivion. Live TV coverage of Simpson’s 1995 murder trial, in which he was found not guilty, became a media circus, so the plaintiffs’ attorney, Daniel Petrocelli, moved to keep cameras out of the civil proceedings.

The killer of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman left the footprint of a size 12 Bruno Magli shoe, a luxury Italian brand, in blood at the crime scene. ABC News had claimed the VHS tapes were gathering dust for years in the basement garage of the Westside law office where Petrocelli questioned Simpson and other witnesses in the civil trial. Documentary filmmakers Steven Auerbach, Chuck Braverman and Lawrence Schiller learned about them through Petrocelli, and featured extensive footage in their documentaries about the Simpson case that will air next week on cable networks A&E and LMN.
