Court TV Reporter Makes it Big

Another famous face from the O.J. Simpson trial was on TV tonight — totally unrelated to the trial of the 20th year anniversary of it.

Terry Moran, who was identified as living in Paris, reported from Paris on the unbelievably horrendous Charlie Hebdo massacre.

Terry covered the ’95 Simpson trial, and several other high-profile cases while I was the Los Angeles Superior Court’s information officer, for the cable television network Court TV, now named truTV. In 1997, following the Simpson civil trial, in which the jury decided on a $33 million judgment against Simpson, Moran moved to ABC where he held a variety of positions, including anchoring the World News Tonight and Nightline before becoming the network’s chief foreign correspondent.

Way to go, Terry!

Simpson Dream Team Adds a FLee

FLee is on the board.

Court TV staffs the camera.

Conflict of interest?


Defense attorney F. Lee Bailey is on Court TV’s board of commentators. Ito asks if the prosecution thinks a conflict of interest would exist if Court TV (since renamed truTV) staffs the courtroom pool TV camera. They say it’s OK.

Media quickly nicknamed Bailey, FLee and gossiped about how he was always helping himself to the hard candy the court clerk kept in a dish at her desk. A testament, some said, to his propensity to over imbibe.
