While I disagree with your views on Simpson in particular, your views are not where my questions are. I wonder why you raise the question at all about celebs being targeted because of their pasts on the one hand, but wave off any discussion on the merits of those ‘pasts’ on the other. Seems to me you’re climbing out on a limb and sawing it off behind you. If you have views on Simpson, the Jena 6, R. Kelly, and the rest, describe those views to justify the stance you’re taking now in terms of why celebrities should or shouldn’t be scrutinized in light of past conduct. Also, I’d like to how you think of Britney Spears, Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan — not that I’m interested in them because frankly, I’m not. But, I am curious as to what you, as a writer here, think about those situations given your article’s “suspicion of suspicion”.
