O.J. Simpson Book Publisher Gets Axed

December 18th, 2006 // Leave a Comment

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.
