CNN.com - Fox News loses attempt to block satirist's book - Aug. 22, 2003: "Saying 'This is an easy case,' a federal judge ruled Friday against Fox News in its lawsuit asserting that a book by liberal satirist Al Franken violates its trademarked slogan, 'fair and balanced.'
Fox was seeking an injunction to halt distribution of 'Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right.'
U.S. District Judge Denny Chin, after listening to about half an hour of oral arguments, said the lawsuit was 'wholly without merit, both factually and legally.' "
Finally, a judge declares that calling Fox 'Fair and Balanceed' is both factually and legally incorrect.
