If I'm reading correctly, this quote is about OJ, after the trial, after everything was said and, IMO, everyone was able to get a good understanding of the situation.
This opens the precedence for the media to destroy an inocent's life and damage his/her image forever because they want to monetize on the subject. Plus internet has a tendency to dogpile someone for the most stupid excuses.
This simply don't feel right.
It's not talking about initial reaction to news/accusations, and thus feels a bit misplaced here.
Edit: It'd still kinda apply, but I wanted to point out the original context.
