Speaking of Adulterers

Judith Regan, publisher of O.J. Simpson, Jenna Jameson, and Rush H. Limbaugh is suing News Corporation. News Corp is better known as the plaything of Rupert Murdoch, who owns, among other items, that fine newspaper the New York Post, the 20th Century Fox movie studio, DirecTV, the Fox Network, Fox News and the Wall Street Journal.

Ms. Regan, a former paramour of Rudy's buddy Bernard Kerik, who himself was charged this week with sixteen counts of fraud and corruption, claims in her lawsuit that two Newscorp bigwigs told her to lie when investigators questioned her about Kerik. The lies, she says, were designed to protect Giuliani's presidential bid.

Regan alleges in court papers that "a senior executive" had advised her to "lie to, and withhold information from, investigators concerning Kerik". Further, "another News Corp. executive similarly advised Regan not to produce clearly relevant documents in connection with the government's investigation of Kerik".

According to Regan, Fox engaged in a smear campaign that "was necessary to advance News Corp.'s political agenda, which has long centred on protecting Rudy Giuliani's presidential ambitions".

What? You mean Fox News has an agenda?
