News Corp has released notes of a conversation between Judith Regan and HarperCollins attorney Mark Jackson, which the company says, resulted in her dismissal. According to the notes, Regan, discussing the company's decision to abandon the O.J. Simpson book and TV deal and the possibility that it would also quash a forthcoming "fictional biography" about Mickey Mantle, remarked that she had been the victim of a "Jewish cabal" who included HarperCollins CEO Jane Friedman, Executive Editor David Hirshey and literary agent Esther Newberg. She allegedly went on to complain that she had received no support from any of them during the Simpson controversy. "Of all people, the Jews should know about ganging up, finding common enemies and telling the big lie," Regan reportedly said. In an interview with today's (Tuesday) Los Angeles Times, Regan attorney Bert Fields acknowledged that Regan had used the term "cabal" but denied she had said "Jewish cabal." As for her additional remark, Fields said, "I'm Jewish, and that statement to me seems in no way anti-Semitic."
