Concluding our Monday morning Three Act play centered in the internal agonies of News Corp., we proudly bring you the reason (or at least the first among equals) for Judith Regan's dismissal Friday from the publishing house she built all by her fine, smutty self:

Rupert Murdoch personally ordered the dismissal of Judith Regan, the publisher of a widely criticized O. J. Simpson book, after he heard reports of a heated conversation Ms. Regan had with a company lawyer on Friday that included comments that were deemed anti-Semitic, according to two people familiar with the News Corporation’s account of the firing….

The conversation with Mr. Jackson on Friday afternoon was described by sources as heated and confrontational, even for the famously forceful Ms. Regan. Ms. Regan’s alleged comments, which came in the midst of a tense conversation in which she berated Mr. Jackson, were directed at him and Ms. Friedman, who are Jewish, as well as toward other Jews, one of the sources said.

Any guesses as to what the offending remarks were?  A free "Shalom Motherfucker" t-shirt to the person who mails me the most creative and nasty hypothesis. (Note: If you send "Shalom Motherfucker," you don't win.)
