Does Judith Regan kiss her mama with that mouth?
Ms. Regan went on to say that the literary agent Esther Newberg; HarperCollins'’s executive editor, David Hirshey; HarperCollins's president, Jane Friedman, and Mr. Jackson "constitute a Jewish cabal against her."

A lawyer for Ms. Regan, Bert Fields, denied that Ms. Regan had said there was a "“Jewish cabal against her," saying she used only the word "cabal" in the conversation, and it came in response to a question from Mr. Jackson. But he acknowledged that she had made some version of the first statement, drawing attention to the fact that her boss and others involved in the controversy over the aborted O.J. Simpson project were Jewish.

He denied, though, that this reflected any anti-Semitism.

Thank goodness. And here I was worried about a Mel Gibson moment.

Hold on a minute.

Is anti-Semitism the new black?
