The next target

Fox News is suing an Austin-based novelty shop that sells Faux News T-shirts and other similar things. So far, this has been a boon for the retailer, boosting their daily page views tenfold, but as is often the case, they have no money to defend themselves against Fox's legal assault. As Neal Pollack suggests, this may have to be the next target for mass mockery. Stay tuned.

On a side note, I got an email from the Agitproperties guy a couple of months ago asking for a link. I didn't reply at the time because I wasn't comfortable linking to a commercial site, even a small one. I'm happy to help with this, though.

Of course, for all of you folks with dirty minds, there's always F**ks or F*x News.

It's just a thought. :)

Charles, thanks for the info... I've seen those shirts before, and I've always wanted one, but haven't known where to get one. I'm ordering one soon!

I got the same email and didn't post it for the same reason. This whole lawsuit thing sucks.

"That's not funny" isn't a legal reason to shut down political humor, or the Savage Weiner Dog would have been muzzled a long time ago.
