To Fox, 'Fair and Balanced' Doesn't Describe Al Franken

To Fox, 'Fair and Balanced' Doesn't Describe Al Franken: "Lawyers for Fox News Network, part of Rupert Murdoch's media empire, News Corporation, contend that Mr. Franken should not be allowed to use those words in the title of his new book due in stores next month, 'Lies, and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right' (Penguin).

They argue that Fox has trademarked 'Fair and Balanced' to describe its news coverage and that Mr. Franken's use of the phrase would 'blur and tarnish' it."

Yep, that's right. Heck the words 'Fair' and 'Balanced' should be suing Fox news for changing their meaning to 'Spun' and 'Biased'.
