Media influences

Media Influences

  • With O.J’s murder trial the most talked about trial in U.S history everyone had their own opinion of if he was guilt or not. O.J’s murder case was highly publicized and gave the nation the idea that he had gotten away with murder, especially after the release of his book titled “If I Did It” which was published in 2006.

  • Shortly After O.J released his book “If I Did It” he was indicted in Nevada for the new robbery case in which O.J broke into a hotel room with a group of men and stole memorabilia that was stolen from him earlier. The robbery was allegedly done at gun point according to Bruce Fromong a former sports memorabilia dealer and witness.

  • On Oct. 3rd 2008 O.J was found guilty exactly 13 years to the day after he was acquitted of murder charges.

  • O.J Recordings as released by TMZ http://www.tmz.com/2007/09/18/o-j-s-alleged-robbery-audio/

  • In my opinion the media influenced the decisions of this case by the former murder trial.


Money influences

  • The media had a big role in following O.J Simpsons cases because he is a celebrity and they new this was a big money deal.

  • The Media obviously played a big role in his

    guilty verdict and his level of sentencing, as O.J

    may now spend the rest of his life in prison.

Media Influences

Bill Clinton was a highly favored president by the U.S.A. citizens most everybody likes him.

Bill’s scandal was highly publicized by the media as he was the president of the United States

The media obviously played a huge role in the decisions for Bill Clinton as it just seemed as nobody really cared that the situation came up.


Money influences1

Money Influences

With money comes power and there is no more powerful place to be then president.

Bill Clinton was able to just get everybody to forget about what happened by just acting like nothing happened

While nothing ever happened with Bill Clinton’s case it is obvious his power and the media made it appear to the world that he did not do anything out of line as he had 0 votes for conviction and next to no votes on impeachment.

Good Job Bill
