Roger Friedman, who wrote the Fox411 column on their news site, was just fired for admitting in his column that he pirated the new Wolverine: Origin movie that is due in theaters in May.
Fox considers it a blow that the film was leaked so early on piracy sites like The Pirate Bay and that it’s a good copy, with only some FX unfinished.
Friedman has been writing the column for 10 years. I have been reading iot about that long. He was able to scoop a lot of stuff, but he also had vendettas against some people like Tom Cruise and would go out of his way to trash them at every turn. A good example was his constant criticism of the Valkyrie movie way before it was even made, and after it came out even though he admits to never having seen it.
When you read the comments about his firing on some sites it’s clear he is not liked by a lot of people. Of course, a lot of those people are Fox haters. It always gets me how bent out of shape people get over Fox when all the other cable news outlets suck vastly more.
