A few comments/nitpicks:
O. J. Simpson was acquitted of murder charges
True enough, but there’s a bit more to the story than that. I certainly don’t recommend jumping on the “his acquittal was the death of Western Civilization” bandwagon, but it might be worth mentioning, at least briefly, the fact that the trial (and acquittal) was a media circus, and that the outcome of the case was culturally divisive.
new media, n. Among the New Words has this term from 1995, but the OED records new media from way back in 1960.
I’m guessing that “new media” meant something quite different in 1960 than in 1995. This seems more like an evolution of the term than an antedating.
sildenafil, n. Yet another drug that panders to baser instincts of men hit the market in 1995. Sildenafil is better known by its brand name, Viagra, a name which appears in 1996.
I’m inferring that the “yet another” is a reference to roofies, the date-rape drug. I’m not sure that its fair to lump Viagra in with roofies. And I’m not sure there’s anything particularly “base” about a man with erectile dysfunction using medication that allows him to resume having a sex life (many men, presumably, use it so they can make love to their wives, which I don’t see as “base"). There are, of course, news reports of men who do not have ED and who used/use Viagra to “improve” their erections, which would be an indulgence in a baser instinct (and also an indulgence in stupidity, not that the two are mutually exclusive), but that’s a fairly specific subcategory of user.
