CLAWS OUT

Did Fox Fire a Writer Over Wolverine?

Perhaps someone needs an introduction to Netflix? Fox News columnist Roger Friedman was reportedly fired after blogging about illegally watching the highly-anticipated Hugh Jackman-fronted Wolverine. Good news for the studio—he loved the film. Bad move on Friedman’s part—he raved about Internet piracy. He wrote: “I did find the whole top 10 [movies in theaters], plus TV shows, commercials, videos, everything, all streaming away. It took really less than seconds to start playing it all right onto my computer…Later tonight I may finally catch up with Paul Rudd in I Love You, Man. It’s so much easier than going out in the rain!” News Corp swiftly removed the post and issued a statement saying Friedman was terminated. The entertainment writer alleges that he still has a job and is rumored to be meeting with executives today. Lesson learned?
