NEW YORK — Staffers at ABC News’ “Good Morning, America” just said “no” to Mark Fuhrman, prompting execs at the ayem show to call off a consultancy deal with the former Los Angeles police detective known for his racist remarks revealed during O.J. Simpson’s murder trial.
“‘GMA’ and ABC News decided to reconsider the relationship,” a “GMA” spokeswoman said Wednesday. However, Fuhrman, who appeared on the show Wednesday morning, will continue to be a regularly featured unpaid guest.
“GMA” had signed Fuhrman to a consultancy gig to comment on the media-intensive murder trial of Michael Skakel, a nephew of Ethel Kennedy who was arraigned Tuesday on charges that he murdered Martha Moxley in Greenwich, Conn., in 1975. Fuhrman’s book “Murder in Greenwich: Who Killed Martha Moxley?” prompted investigators to reopen the case.
