Breaking: Judith Regan Fired / Jossip
Breaking: Judith Regan Fired
— Fri, Dec 15, 2006 —


We're hearing Judith Regan has been fired by Rupert Murdoch after an intense back-and-forth following the O.J. Simpson book scandal. Effective immediately, Regan is no longer leading ReganBooks, the Harper Collins imprint.

Update: The New York Times has more details, though they state:

It is also unclear whether Ms. Regan has been dismissed only from HarperCollins, or terminated entirely from the News Corporation, Rupert Murdoch???s giant media company. Over the years, Ms. Regan has gained a growing amount of sway within the company because of her ability to generate profits from books and other ventures.

Our understanding is that Regan has been removed from News Corp. entirely.

Sloppy thinking, Cindy. Sadly-- or happily, depending on the way you look at it-- filthiness seems to infest the thinking and behavior of people other than Jews, too, kinda equally.

Doing something that is highly controversial can backfire, or it can payoff. I'm glad in this case, it was the former.

Vinnie says:

First of all...REGAN is hardly a Jewish name.
Secondly, following the "happiness" that seems to have ensued here, shouldn't that post be removed because I find it offensive?

Isn't the whole idea behind a website like this, is that we get to excercise our 1st Amendment rights? That is what Regan does.

If we start censoring books and other forms of communication in this country simply because we don't like the message or the messenger, we are doomed!

The Jew comment was uncalled for. There are many other good, legitimate reasons to loathe Regan.

corkey says:

what does her ethnicity have to do with anything? she's obviously just a scapegoat for a male-dominated media company. i had the opportunity to interview this woman once in my life and she is amazing.

obviously, you have no idea what you're talking about. by the way, she's half sicilian and half irish.

Yeah, Regan is "half sicilian and half irish" like Geraldo Rivera is Puerto Rican. She's another jew posing as a White, like Sumner Redstone, etc.

Using racial epithets and sexist remarks is a great way to exercise your free speech and combat anti-Jewish comments, Smith. You fu*king idiot! BTW Smith, if you're Jewish you are a sad excuse for a Jew; we don't ignorant, racist language to combat stupidity, YOU IDIOT!

Hey Mikey,
as soon as I'm done fucking your dead grandmother and get her bones reburried, I'll teach you how to proofread your pissy little post so your future ones aren't rife with errors.
And as for you pissed off, basically you should eat shit and die you fat, ugly douchebag.
Cindy...I can still smell your cunt, and Tamara..don't choke on those watermelon seeds. : )
I dare you to write back you filthy cuntrags

Pat says:

You're all idiots...Murdoch had Regan escorted off company property and then fired her NOT because of the O.J. incident or Mickey Mantle but because she was overheard making anti-Jewish (not semitic...arabs are semites too) comments. The other stuff only made the situation worse. You don't hear about the real reason because Jewish folks are afraid that anti-semitism is growing in this country, as it is in Europe, and don't want to publicize that aspect of it. Tamara and Cindy, do some research before you verbally vomit.

Smith says:

Tamara can't read, never had time to learn. She was too busy hiding her pregnancies from her crackwhore mamma and throwing her fetuses out the bathroom window into the alley below. Mamma would have whooped her if she found out that her pimp was double-dippin'.

RealityCheck says:

Sounds to me like Smith knows Tamara pretty well. Picks her up on the corner regularly and pays very well I heard. Only thing is she had to drop them babies out the window so Smith's wifey didn't find out about the cafe au lait babies he's been makin'.

What's going on here? Aren't we supposed to be commenting on Judith's ouster? I think I'll stick to Gawker from now on.

Fabiola says:

This is the second totally irrelevant anti-Semitic remark made by Cindy that I have seen on Jossip; it wouldn't surprise me if there were many more. Of course, what is so amusing is that Regan, who of course is not Jewish, was dismissed for inappropropriate anti-Semitic remarks.
I, too ,will not be coming back to this site.
The Jossip editors are free to delete her comments. That is not censorship. The First Amendment says:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
The Jossip editors can do whatever the hell they want.

Smith, rhymes with shit, so suck my dick you sniveling little bitch( OHHHHH, SNAP, THAT WAS OFF THE HEZZZY ).
By the way, thats no way to talk to your father. You sound just like your mother. Thats why I threw her ass out in the street while she was giving birth to you.
And this is the thanks I get.
Lousy stinking Kid.
You used to live in my testes, now your talking back. Hmmmmph.
Oh, and if my post is rife, like Barney Fife, it's because I was too busy fucking.
