Fox Denied; Franken Unrepentant

Today Fox News struck out with its absurd attempt to block sales of comedian/political commentator Al Franken’s new headline-making book, Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right.

Newsday reports: “’There are hard cases and there are easy cases,’ U.S. District Judge Denny Chin told Fox's lawyers Friday. ‘This is an easy case in my view and wholly without merit, both factually and legally.'”

Afterwards, claiming the publicity had increased demand for his book, Franken said, "I'd like to thank Fox's lawyers for filing one of the stupidest briefs I've ever seen in my life."

Read the fair and balanced piece.
