OJ Simpson – Another Victim

by | 18th, December 2006

RUPERT Murdoch has fired Judith Regan.

Word came tonight, meant to be buried as a weekend begins, just as Rupert’s NewsCorp Christmas party was getting into swing, with Bill O’Reilly whispering in the ears of grudging production assistants about loofahs, and Sean Hannity telling yet another associate producer that he really does know Charlie Daniels.

The brilliant, toxic editrix, who made writers out of Hannity and Howard Stern alike, went too far with her scheme to create and promote the OJ Simpson If I Did It, Here’s How It Happened book and informercials.

We told you the firing was in the cards: She embarrassed the boss.

On Nov 18, we asked What came first? OJ Simpson or the manuscript? And brought up the possibility that the “ghostwriter” for the Simpson book – Regan’s former lover and murder trial witness, Pablo Fenjves – had concocted the book, then sold it to Simpson.

Had she played it right, had she been more respectful of the public’s intelligence, had she not come up with that unhinged and obviously cynical explanation of her motivations, and had she not so lied so blatantly in claiming that she didn’t pay Simpson, Judith Regan might be clinking glasses with Mike Darnell in Century City tonight.

But she’ll be back…
