American 24-hour news channels were engulfed with the latest sensation on the cards. A knife was found at the old estate of former NFL running back O.J. Simpson, acquitted for killing his ex-wife and her friend back in 1994.
President Obama was intent enough to take a dig at the media for their obsession of a topic over more important matters in hand.
“Well, I thought it might be useful to take a small break from the spectacle of the political season – and now, I gather, O.J. – to focus on something that really matters to the American people, and that is how is the economy doing” Obama said while Vice President Joe Bidden giggled, according to a report by USA Today.
Obama was relating to news which stated that a construction worker found a knife at O.J. Simpson’s estate. The worker then gave the knife to an LAPD cop he saw on the street. The cop, who was then off-duty took the knife with him and kept it in his possession.
In January this year, the cop retired from service and disclosed the news of the knife to his friend, who worked in LAPD’s Robbery Homicide Division (RHD). That friend went to tell the news to his superiors and the knife was retrieved.
The knife is currently being tested for DNA samples and other evidences. A source claimed that knife in question is extremely stained and rusted, as reported by TMZ.
Obama wants his nation to focus on real issues and believes that the media should be more responsible in what it covers as news. He also took an alleged dig at Donald Trump while mentioning that America is doing “pretty darn great” despite what some other political folks are saying.
According to the Department of Labor, United States, 242,000 new jobs were added in February. It was around 172,000 more than the previous month.
