Fair and Balanced

Since Fox is neither fair nor balanced, the notion that these people could have won a trademark on the expression — which they did — is mostly testament to the continuing incompetence at the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office. But Fox’s lawsuit is entirely testament to the arrogance of Murdoch’s minions and the growing idiocy of the legal system.


I commend Fox for all the hard work in promoting its unfair, unbalanced entertainment (calling it “news” is a bit much). It certainly is drawing an audience, and as a shill for the Bush White House it’s downright competent.

Way togo Dan Gillmor, on Fox sueing Al Frankin over his new book.
