Judith Regan Fired – Was it the OJ Book?


My bet, yes it was. The Drudge Report has the exclusive that Judith Regan was fired from the head of Harper Collins because of the fiasco that was the OL Simpson book release. And I think that was about right.

PUBLISHING GURU JUDITH REGAN LET GO FROM MURDOCH EMPIRE… Judith Regan’s employment with Harpercollins has been terminated effective immediately, sources tell DRUDGE REPORT… Regan publishing program and staff will continue as part of the Harpercollins general books group… The OJ fiasco is not the main reason for terminating the world’s most successful publisher, sources explain. “Many factors led to this decision,” says an insider. The force behind smash bestsellers by Rush Limbaugh, Howard Stern, Sean Hannity and others could not be reached for comment late Friday… Word of the firing came as Murdoch’s NEWS CORP. was holding its Christmas party…

      Word came down during the Christmas Party? OUCH! Well all i can say is GOOD!~ Everyone knows he’s a double murderer & a freakshow. This heifer wants to be a part of that freakshow spotlighting a vicious brutal murder on 2 people and facillitate the killer kicking Ron & Nicole’s Family in the teeth yet again. That makes her scum.

      case closed!

      I suspect that they needed a “scapegoat.” That’s not saying the whole project wasn’t offensive and outrageous; it was from the start. But without the strong and immediate public reaction, which the company hadn’t calculated on, the moral factor would have been overlooked and the basis for evaluating the project would have been simply whether it was financially successful.

      Since this DID tweak the public, however, the company had to be seen doing something in return.

      But at least this shows that outrage, and taking action on it, can make a difference. Take note, Aruba … cleaning out the Augean stables of your “government” is long overdue.

      At least that’s one thing we can do for Aruba: offer to put some of their people in our prisons. So what if they’re overcrowded already.

      How long will it take Judith Regan to get her own book out: “The truth behind the OJ project.”

      Or, perhaps, “Showdown at the OJ corral.”

      i’m hoping to see the same reaction to jvds’ book when it comes out. unless the publisher is smart enough to see the handwriting on the wall and cancel out now. hard to believe someone was dumb and heartless enough to approach the sporter about a book deal anyway.

      I sort of think the only reason Regan signed the deal was she got the opportunity and many many other journalists that would have, opportunity and if they had thought of the approch — would have. Everyone can think of their own memory of journalists interviewing bad people.

      The OJ thing just struck a parculiar cord with the public. It did me as well. But book burning is a really bad thing too. So is kill the messenger. The project was pulled, we got what we wanted, though appearances are H Colins thought a few weeks more and got it wrong again.

      How many reporters would pay for an interview with Saddam, or down the scale give a book deal and interview with one of the Kalpunks after found liable in a civil court upcoming? I have seen Clinton and Kerry, Fonda interviewed numerous times and likes of me see them as mass murders.

      The OJ deal had to do with his in your face ‘I sort of did it’ accompanied by the grin. Regan was not part of the act, but of the reporting undoubtably. I as part of the public may have placed too much blame on her the messenger. We blocked that amount of information we may have recieved, that may have let OJ noose himself…letting him take Regan too as a victum? Hope not. If her only true blame is this book/interview deal, makes me appologize.
