Last week, truth-seeking media mogul and icon of inspiration, Oprah Winfrey, told the press that she would like to get ex pro-football player and convicted felon, O.J. Simpson, to confess to the alleged murder of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown, and Ronald Goldman in 1994. Acquitted of this charge in 1995, O.J. Simpson has gone on to be found guilty for numerous felonies including kidnapping and robbery.
