Movie pirate and Fox News columnist Roger Friedman — who was reported as fired on Saturday but was today supposedly given a fake chance to plead his case to Roger Ailes — has officially been terminated for reviewing a downloaded copy ofWolverine, says Gawker. Fox News gave the blog this statement:
“Fox News representatives and Roger Friedman met today and mutually agreed to part ways immediately. Fox News appreciates Mr. Friedman’s ten years of contributions to building foxnews.com and wishes him success in his future endeavors. Mr. Friedman is grateful to his colleagues for their friendship and support over the past decade.”
Now Fox just has to find the guy who leaked Wolverine in the first place, remove every single copy uploaded to the Internet, and delete it off the personal hard drives of the countless thousands who’ve already downloaded it, and we can all put this entire debacle behind us.
