*20 years ago, famed defense attorney F. Lee Bailey helped O.J. Simpson beat murder charges. Now, with Simpson a free man after serving nearly a decade for a Nevada robbery and kidnapping case, Bailey opens up about how his former client has been treated by the media.
In an appearance on the “Morano Whenever” podcast on Thursday, Bailey accused Hollywood Jews of pushing anti-OJ narratives since being acquitted for the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman.
Here’s what Bailey had to say to host and radio personality Frank Morano:
I’m sorry to say, there is on New York’s publisher’s row a policy now, if you publish anything about O.J. and it’s favorable, it won’t sell and we won’t push it. And in Hollywood, if you do a portrayal that’s favorable to O.J. Simpson we won’t fund it. So some of the people who claim that most of their lives they’ve been subjected to horrible kinds of prejudice, and indeed extermination during World War II, are now behaving in exactly the same totalitarian spirit by suppressing the one thing this country has to be proud of when all is said and done, and that’s an unfettered free press. And they have done it within the corporate structure without ever causing a court to take a look at it.

Bailey went on to say that the only people who speak poorly of O.J. are those who get their information from the media. People who watched the whole Simpson murder trial “don’t disparage O.J.,” he said. “Other than Fred Goldman.”
He is also totally convinced that O.J. was innocent and here’s Bailey’s theory about the double homicide case (per Town&Country):
Faye Resnick, Nicole Brown Simpson’s frequent houseguest, who happened to be holed up in rehab for cocaine addiction on the night of the murder, was the intended target of a drug-related hit. His investigators heard rumors that Resnick owed drug dealers $30,000, a theory the defense introduced in the trial.
“We think the killers came to look for Faye Resnick, who was also blond, and, typical of hitmen, they were dumb enough to mistake Nicole for Faye Resnick.”
Bailey has previously shared how his life went left following the Simpson trial, including a bankruptcy and being disbarred.
As reported by Law and Crime, in Thursday’s podcast, Bailey said his role in the Simpson trial was “the bedrock reason why the government … went after my license.”
