A federal judge has ruled against Fox News in its lawsuit attempting to suppress publication of liberal satirist Al Franken's book, Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right. Franken's book rose to the top of Amazon.com's bestseller list after Fox filed the suit, in which it claims that the title of the book infringes upon its trademarked slogan, "fair and balanced." According to Peter Ames Carlin, Fox commentator Bill O'Reilly is still lying about one of the lies that Franken exposes in his book, in which O'Reilly falsely claimed to have received a prestigious Peabody Award for journalism. "O'Reilly had nothing to do with the award," Carlin writes. "He should take responsibility for claiming otherwise. Instead, he's attacking Al Franken and trying to bully me into changing the record for him."
