FRANKEN & FOX: THAT WAS QUICK
And so will this post be, because there's not much to say about it. Basically, a federal judge ruled against Fox News in its case against Al Franken's use of the term "fair and balanced". It didn't even come down to a silly little technicality, as I kinda hoped it would.

There's lots of comedic value to mining the idiot legalese arguments touched on in the report. But frankly, that's how it is with every court case.

Update: To make it all official, Fox News has dropped the lawsuit, but not without taking a pissy-fit swipe at Franken. Is it any wonder why conservatives have to continually justify their jackass views?
