CLARK 'APPALLED' BY SIMPSON CALL TO COURT TV

Marcia Clark still is trying to make her case against O.J. Simpson.

Ms. Clark, who quit the district attorney's office after losing the Simpson murder case, appeared Friday on CNBC's "Rivera Live" to complain about Court TV's broadcast of Simpson's opinions about a nanny accused of shaking a baby to death in Massachusetts.

Simpson telephoned Court TV and spoke in favor of maintaining a presumption of innocence for Louise Woodward, 19, and questioned whether accused killers should be convicted for doing something nobody saw, according to host Geraldo Rivera.

"This is, this is just appalling," Ms. Clark said. "I've never seen anything like this. It makes me nauseous that they would actually do this. This is a legal analyst now! He's become an expert because he himself was tried for murder, and he's guilty!"

Rivera, an outspoken Simpson critic, suggested the former sports hero and actor was trying to rehabilitate his image.

"This is precisely what he wants," Ms. Clark said. "You go ahead and let him get on these television shows, you let him act like an analyst, you give him a cloak of honor, and you're going to wind up with somebody who's going to worm his way back onto the airwaves and get endorsements again."
