O. J. Deal Cancelled But Judith Regan Remains

News Corp cancelled the O. J. Simpson interview and book. Good.

Judith Regan's status is unaffected. Bad.

I's like to think that this decision demonstrates a remaining shred or two of integrity on the part of Murdoch and News Corp execs, but I'm too realistic.

They made a fast cost-benefit analysis. Whatever amount of money this may have earned them (speculative) is outweighed by the damage (also speculative) the Simpson book-interview would do to the various News Corp properties.

Judith Regan concocted this fiasco, yet she is not held accountable for its failure. That's emblematic of the dysfunction of our corporate and governing elites.
