OJ Editor A Bigot?

The latest scuttlebutt is that Judith Regan was fired by Rupert Murdoch after making allegedly somewhat anti-Semitic remarks to colleagues. This was the final straw, of course, not the entire reason.
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.

That source would not say specifically what Ms. Regan is alleged to have said, but characterized the comments as offensive and inappropriate, but not a hateful tirade.
Hmm, so the comments fell somewhere between a Mel Gibson and a Kramer?
