First Amendment Violation?!?
    #3449535 - 12/05/04 12:25 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)




In a lawsuit, ?Fox vs. Penguin Group?, Fox unsuccessfully tried to stop
Penguin Books from publishing Al Franken?s book which criticizes major
news organizations. It just seems a bit ironic since Fox News is
suppose to support free speech.

Though I haven?t read his book yet, I did notice that Court TV?s going
to show a documentary of the case called ?The First Amendment Project?.
Has anyone heard of or seen it yet? The only place that I?ve heard that
it was shown was at this year?s Hamptons Film Festival, but I missed
that. Last I checked it?s going to be on at 10pm this Tuesday?just
wondering if anyone has some insight about it before I stay up to watch
it.

Bob

Fox News does not support free speech, is not fair, nor biased, and is run by a load of partisan assclowns bent on furthering their allies' agendas.

This documentary you speak of sounds interesting, and I may watch it when it comes on. I haven't heard anything of it though.

We have "reckless fiscal policies"

America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership.

Americans deserve better

I like Fox News. Al Franken is a commie.

Fox can't violate the first amendment, as they're not the gov't. Doesn't stop them from acting like a bunch of assholes.
