Unfair and Unbalanced news not so good
Republican businessman Bill Simon dropped out of the race for California governor on Saturday, boosting the campaign of actor Arnold Schwarzenegger in the October recall vote.
There is no question he was strongly pressured to get out of Arnold’s way.
Fair and Balanced News that's good.
Calling the motion "wholly without merit, both factually and legally," the judge, Denny Chin of United States District Court, said that a person would have to be "completely dense" not to realize the cover was a joke, and that trademark protection for the phrase "Fair and Balanced" was unrealistic because the words are so commonly used.
Fox also objected to the use of a picture of Bill O'Reilly, one of its prominent news personalities, on the cover, claiming that it could be mistaken as an endorsement of the book.
But these arguments were met by laughter in the crowded courtroom....
One round of laughter was prompted when Judge Chin asked, "Do you think that the reasonable consumer, seeing the word `lies' over Mr. O'Reilly's face would believe Mr. O'Reilly is endorsing this book?"
It's good to see some Judges out there have both common sense and a good sense of humor.
