My Sides Hurt

This is a Win Win situation for me.

Neither one of these assholes have a snowballs chance in Hell of winning and now they have one less avenue for spewing their crazy assed bullshit.

Best yet, it is costing them money.

Two down.

Update, via TPM and my pals at Alternate Brain,

Fox news showing footage supposedly of union thugs in Wisconsin.

Like they said, since when is the last time you saw a Palm Tree in Wisconsin?

John Amato from Crooks and Liars is all over this and has filed a complaint ;


This is what's known as perpetrating a News Distortion on viewers and is strictly forbidden by the FCC. Fox News has done this type of distortion previously and I filed a complaint with the FCC and documented what they had done here.
Where to go to file a complaint:
News Distortion. The Commission often receives complaints concerning broadcast journalism, such as allegations that stations have aired inaccurate or one-sided news reports or comments, covered stories inadequately, or overly dramatized the events that they cover. For the reasons noted above, the Commission generally will not intervene in such cases because it would be inconsistent with the First Amendment to replace the journalistic judgment of licensees with our own. However, as public trustees, broadcast licensees may not intentionally distort the news: the FCC has stated that “rigging or slanting the news is a most heinous act against the public interest.”
The Commission will investigate a station for news distortion if it receives documented evidence of such rigging or slanting, such as testimony or other documentation, from individuals with direct personal knowledge that a licensee or its management engaged in the intentional falsification of the news. Of particular concern would be evidence of the direction to employees from station management to falsify the news. However, absent such a compelling showing, the Commission will not intervene.
For additional information about news distortion, see http://www.fcc.gov/cgb/consumerfacts/journalism.html.
Please submit a complaint against FOX News and The O'Reilly Factor
I'd also call into FOX News and ask them to stop distorting the news.
