Murdoch ordered Regan’s firing

In this interesting piece from the New York Times it is reported that Judith Regan was fired after her intemperate behavior provoked the News Corp head honcho himself, Rupert Murdoch. If this account is true, it would lessen the likelihood that Regan’s firing was the result of a personal feud she was said to have had with her boss at HarperCollins. Rupert Murdoch is a pretty shrewd executive. If he personally ordered Ms. Regan’s termination, I would surmise that it is considerably more likely than I at first thought that News Corp’s “for cause” defense would stand up.
