Fighting Words: ‘Brian Lewis No Longer Has Any Confidentiality Obligation to Roger Ailes’

Brian Lewis is not going down without a fight. Lewis, whose firing as Fox News Channel’s top communications executive last month (which came to light last week) has hired pit bull attorney Judd Burstein. Gawker obtained this statement from Burstein:

I have just been retained and am still plotting our course of action. But two things are very clear to me. First, Brian Lewis no longer has any confidentiality obligation to Newscorp or Roger Ailes because of the false and malicious statements made by Fox to date. Second, Roger Ailes and Newscorp have a lot more to fear from Brian Lewis telling the truth about them than Brian Lewis has to fear from Roger Ailes and his toadies telling lies about Brian Lewis.

Just last week, Lewis seemed to take the high road about his dismissal, telling TVNewser: “I will say it has been an honor and privilege to work for Roger Ailes the past 20 years and I wish nothing but the best for him and the great people at Fox News.”

Burstein’s past clients include Donny Deutsch, Donald Trump and boxers Oscar de La Hoya and Lennox Lewis. Clearly, he’s looking for a fight.

Video: Stephen A. Smith Hints There's Something Going On With LeBron James' Personal Life

Here we go again.

Stephen A. Smith hinted Thursday morning that he heard something is going on in LeBron James‘ personal life, which might explain his poor outing in Game 3 of the NBA Finals.

Sound familiar? *Cough, Gloria James, cough*

Based on Smith’s recent track record (he broke the LeBron story last year), you have to believe him at this point. But why bring it up if you aren’t willing to dive into the topic?

NFL Offering Two Ways To Catch Giants-Vikings

In case you don’t have the NFL Sunday Ticket or live in New York and Minneapolis, the NFL is offering two ways to watch the Giants-Vikings game later this evening.

Starting at midnight Eastern, the entire game will be posted online commercial-free at NFL.com for 24 hours. And if you aren’t in front of your computer, you can catch the game at the same time on The NFL Network.

Good luck avoiding the score until then.
