O.J. Simpson Book Publisher Gets Axed

And surprisingly, not by The Juice himself. As it turns out, the chick behind the publishing deal that tried to bring to life O.J. Simpson’s controversial tome, “If I Did It,” recently got her ass canned on Friday. From CNN.com:

“Judith Regan’s employment with HarperCollins has been terminated effective immediately,” HarperCollins CEO Jane Friedman said in a statement. “The Regan publishing program and staff will continue as part of the HarperCollins General Books Group.”

Regan’s firing comes less than a month after Murdoch’s cancellation of Simpson’s hypothetical murder confession, “If I Did It,” a planned book and Fox television interview that was greeted with instant and near-universal disgust when announced.

Yes, a move that might have been impressive had it happened BEFORE this shit got within an inch of being published.
