More fair and balanced than you deserve

As you can see above, I've jumped on the Fair and Balanced bandwagon in support of Al Franken, who is being sued by Fox News Network because his latest book is called "Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right".

Silly Fox News. Didn't you learn anything from Michael "Savage" Weiner? I can already hear Neal Pollack warming up his engines, a sound that will surely make the stoutest of Roger Ailes' lawyers tremble in their wingtips. Surrender now, Fox News. It will only get worse for you from here.

I was considering doing a post on this....

FOX News is dumb.. they're just giving Franken free publicity... which is just fine with me.

I didn't even know that their slogan was "Fair and Balanced". Shows how much I pay attention to Faux News.

Is it too late for Franken to change the title of the book to "Fox News is a Big Fat Idiotic Network"?

IANAL but I suspect this is going down to either parody or fair use, both of which are protected. Faux is wasting its time and money.

To me, applying F&B to Faux is self parody.
