Fox to air never-before-seen OJ Simpson ‘confession’

Years after it was pulled before airing, an interview with O.J. Simpson offering a “hypothetical” account of what happened the night that Nicole Brown and her friend Ronald Goldman were brutally murdered will be released.

“OJ Simpson: The Lost Confession?” is a new special that will air this week. The interview was slated to air in 2006 when Simpson was promoting his book, “If I Did It,” but both were scrapped at the time because of the public backlash.

On today’s show, Glenn, Pat and Stu watched the trailer for the new special, which will air this Sunday on Fox.

“He starts speaking hypothetically, and then all of a sudden, it turns first person, and it’s chilling when he does,” Pat described.

PAT: I'm excited about Sunday night. Are you guys going to watch the O.J. confession?

GLENN: If I remember.

PAT: You got to remember.

GLENN: You have to call me. I won't remember.

PAT: Oh, you have to remember. It's 7 o'clock Central, so 8:00 Eastern. And this is the one done that was done, what? Ten, twelve years ago, when they wrote the book, if I did it, here's how it happened.

GLENN: Do we know why that book wasn't released?

PAT: Yeah. Because the Goldmans were pissed, and they stopped it.

STU: And they were like, hey, maybe you shouldn't be making millions of dollars off our kid's murder. So it became a controversy at the time.

PAT: So whoever did it in the first place -- I think it was Fox, wasn't it? That shelved it. So now they're bringing it back out after all this time and putting it on the air.

GLENN: And they're putting it on the air now because, eh, nobody cares about the Goldmans anymore. Is that what it is?

PAT: Yeah. It's been long enough now, I guess. So they're going to play it. And he goes through this hypothetical. And he starts speaking hypothetically. And then all of a sudden, it turns first person. And it's chilling when he does.

Because he starts talking about his friend Charlie that came over to his house. And he said to me, in the words of O.J. -- he said to me, O.J., you're not going to believe what's going on at Nicole's house. And he said, whatever is going on, it's got to stop.

GLENN: Do we have the audio of that?

PAT: We have the --

STU: The trailer.

PAT: I think we have the trailer of it.

GLENN: Play a little bit of it.

VOICE: 2006, O.J. Simpson gave a no-holds-barred interview, including his gripping account of what might have happened that fateful night. For over a decade, the tapes of that infamous interview were lost, until now.

STU: Lost.

VOICE: I'm going to tell you a story you've never heard before. It takes place the night of June 12, 1994, and it concerns the murders of my ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her young friend Ronald Goldman. Forget everything you think you know about that night. Because I know the facts better than anyone.

PAT: I bet you do.

STU: I bet he does.

VOICE: This is one story the whole world got wrong.

VOICE: Does he confess? You be the judge. O.J. Simpson. The Lost Confession. Sunday, March 11th, on Fox.

GLENN: It wasn't lost. It was sitting in some vault some place, and somebody was licking their chops going, oh, my gosh.

PAT: Is it time yet?

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. It's time now, isn't it?

STU: Now that he's out, they can actually play this, I guess. It's amazing because he does do it in the first person.

GLENN: But wasn't that the point of the book.

STU: Yes, but what a weird point. It's one of the strangest things in American history.

PAT: It is. Well, because he starts talking if it happened, here's how it might have happened. But then he switches to, I did this. And he said this to me. And it's a chilling kind of switch into first person speak, where it sounds like he's talking about what he did.

STU: Yeah.

PAT: What he actually did.

STU: Can you imagine going to someone who is accused of a crime. And his freedom is dependent on the idea that he did not commit it. And going to him and saying, hey, would you write a book, describing a hypothetical way of the way you would commit the crime you're accused of? What would possibly motivate you, other than the fact that you did do it and you believe you wanted to confess for some reason, either money or for -- to get it off your chest, but you knew you couldn't do it without going to prison. This is your way of confessing it.

GLENN: I just want to point out, it's worse than that. It is, imagine, your wife has been killed. A brutal, brutal killing. You are busy looking for the killer.

PAT: On every golf course in America.

GLENN: People think you have done it, what would possess you --

PAT: Nothing.

GLENN: You would say, that's obscene.

STU: Of course.

GLENN: If I remember, I am going to definitely watch this on Sunday night.

PAT: If you remember.

STU: Well, you might be out fixing old cars in the garage.

GLENN: Well, not fixing exactly.

STU: Sitting under them.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: You need to put a flat screen underneath the car.

STU: I've already got one. Because the car doesn't work because I have no idea how to fix it.

Trans Activism Will End Your Parental Rights | Abigail Shrier | Ep 110

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it is incredibly dangerous. Just ask Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier. Her book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — just like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, Shrier argues it could end your parental rights for good. She is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy number one to the activists. Recently, the American Booksellers Association even called sending her book to others "a serious, violent incident." Abigail joins Glenn to lay out just how slippery this slope has proven to be and what we — conservatives and liberals — must do to protect our children.

DEADLY Negligence: Exposing the REAL Origins & Coverup of the COVID-19 Pandemic

Who were the people and groups involved with coronavirus research, and what really went down before and after the pandemic began? On "Glenn TV" this week, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to outline a tale of negligence and then, coverup. The elites of the world - the people calling themselves experts - trusted the Chinese Communist Party with one of the most dangerous weapons we can imagine on this planet--a virus.

Glenn reveals who was involved in a definitive timeline, and argues: If proof of a lab leak does come out, the worlds needs to know EVERYONE that was involved. We must expose the coverup and attempt to control the narrative of the pandemic origins. Everyone from Big Tech, the media, the Chinese and even our own government have been involved. What lies behind the coverup could reveal the dirty secret that, in order to cut corners, the academic elites and government entrusted Communist China with a civilization-killing virus.

WATCH: Glenn shares a little bit of history in CPAC speech

Glenn cut his vacation short to share a little bit of history with the crowds at CPAC Saturday. Check out this clip to watch the speech in its entirety.

Are electric vehicles REALLY the best solution? Here are the FACTS

Electric vehicles are the wave of the future. They are so much better for the environment. At least that's what we have been told, but is this correct?

On his TV special, Glenn Beck explained how electric vehicles (EVs) might not actually be the environmental solution we've been led to believe. In fact, they may not be a solution at all.

Glenn shared a recent article from LiveScience that reported:

A 2014 study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences looked at the entire life cycle of an EV's emissions, from mining the metals required for the batteries to producing the electricity needed to power them, and then compared this with the average emissions of a gas-powered vehicle. The team found that when electric vehicles are charged with coal-powered electricity, they're actually worse for the environment than conventional gasoline cars.

He next shared an article from The Greenage, which stated:

The Union of Concerned Scientists has calculated that manufacturing a mid-sized EV with an 84-mile range results in about 15 percent more emissions than manufacturing an equivalent gasoline vehicle. For larger, longer-range EVs that travel more than 250 miles per charge, the manufacturing emissions can be as much as 68 percent higher.

Noting how electric vehicles and other fossil-fuel alternatives require the use of mined minerals like lithium, cobalt, zinc, copper, and nickel, among others, Glenn quoted an International Energy Agency report that warned reaching the goals of the Paris Agreement "would mean a quadrupling of mineral requirements for clean energy technologies by 2040. An even faster transition, to hit net-zero globally by 2050, would require six times more mineral inputs in 2040 than today."

"Can [you] predict which country is the world leader in processing the minerals needed for these batteries? Right, China," Glenn stated. "The average EV requires over 200 kilograms of minerals. The average gas vehicle requires 40 kilograms of minerals, mostly copper. A single EV has 22 pounds of lithium in it ... yet another way that the green reset of American energy is putting us all at the mercy of Communist China."

"Oh, and remember during the Obama administration when the world was gonna end' over fracking?" Glenn asked. "Well, the Institute for Energy Research now says, and I quote, 'Mining and processing of lithium, however, turns out to be far more environmentally harmful than what turned out to be the unfounded issues with fracking.'"
