Democracy: 1. Hypocrisy: 0.
You can all put your thesauri down: a federal judge has ruled that it is legal to use the phrase "fair and balanced" to describe something other than Fox News.
The article is eminently quotable, but this one really tickles me:
Although Franken has appeared as a guest on Fox News Channel at least 10 times in the past five years, according to Fox, he is not affiliated with the network, which, in court papers, called his commentary "not good enough to be endorsed by Fox News."I believe that's what you call "praising with faint damns"...
