Fair and Balanced

I'm joining the party, temporarily renaming this blog "Dimmy Karras - Fair and Balanced" in keeping with the trend in the blogosphere now that Fox News is suing Al Franken for using the F&B line in his new book title. Almost every blogger is writing on this one today, and here's the NYT article on it. Check out the random attacks on Franken in the text of the lawsuit:

"'Franken is neither a journalist nor a television news personality,' according to the complaint. 'He is not a well-respected voice in American politics; rather, he appears to be shrill and unstable. His views lack any serious depth or insight.'"

"...Mr. Franken is also accused of verbally attacking Mr. O'Reilly and other Fox personalities on at least two occasions, and of being 'either intoxicated or deranged' as he flew into a rage at a press correspondents' dinner in April 2003. Mr. Franken has not filed a response in court to the suit."

Fox News is run by a bunch of bastards, as you can see, but you already knew that.
