16 Jul 2004 Suing/Censoring Fox News
Michael King at Ramblings’ Journal has a post that could be a parody, but isn’t: A group of left-wing groups, apparently including Common Cause, MoveOn.org and AlterNet.org, are planning to sue Fox News for using the slogan “fair and Balanced.”
Lefties often flasely accuse the right of censorship (many erroneously thought the voluntary grassroots conservative boycott of the ridiculous and defamatory CBS/HBO “Reagans” movie constituted censorship), but when you go to a government court to tell a TV broadcast network how to cover the news, it is the real thing. Or it would be if they aren’t laughed out of court. Which is likely.
One more case for the frivolous lawsuit files. If Overlawyered.com doesn’t have this covered already, it will soon.
