Fox nearly sues itself over a Simpsons parody of its news channel

Rupert Murdoch's Fox News Channel threatened to sue the makers of "The Simpsons" over a parody of the channel's right-wing political stance, the creator of the hit US television show has claimed.

In an interview this week with National Public Radio, Matt Groening recalled how the news channel had considered legal action, despite the fact that "The Simpsons" is broadcast on sister network, Fox Entertainment.

According to Groening, Fox took exception took a Simpsons' version of the Fox News rolling news ticker which parodied the channel's anti-Democrat stance, with headlines like "Do Democrats Cause Cancer?"

"Fox fought against it and said they would sue the show," Groening said.

"We called their bluff because we didn't think Rupert Murdoch would pay for Fox to sue itself. So, we got away with it."

Kudos to Mr. Prizio for putting together a Hillsdale College 'Blogging Community link list. Technically, this blog should be listed as a multiple author blog, but I can see how one might assume otherwise. I'm also proud to note that this blog does not remotely resemble any of the standard fare... although, admittedly, I am a bit jealous of Mark's blog.

Kind of a strange thing to post... but I really liked this posting about weddings over at Buttafly. Having seen seemingly sane women turn into complete pyscho "I'm going to throw a tantrum because the napkins are folded wrong" brides, I sympathize.

I can't help but think Matt is making some not-too-subtle commentary on my blogging.. and for the record, this blog has only had one lobster-related flash animation link and it was pretty goddamn funny. :-P

A warning to all lobster-lovers:

Girlfriend Dumped After Forwarding Stupid Link

GREAT FALLS, MT—Amanda Manis was dumped Monday after forwarding boyfriend Anthony Madrid a link for the humor web site "I was convinced that I had found my soulmate, my kindred spirit, the woman I could grow old with," Madrid said. "Then, out of nowhere, Mandy e-mails me this stupid link. When I saw those Flash-animation cartoons, I knew it was over."

Nothing like a little salt in the wound. Check out PETA's heartfelt fax to Roy Horn as he lay in critical condition:

"The only natural thing that happened on that stage was that this majestic animal lashed out against a captor who was beating him with a microphone because he wouldn't do a trick," Mathews continued. "No matter how much you say that you love the wild animals whom you have confined continents away from their natural homes, you are still the men who have subjugated their wills and natures to further your own careers."

I guess Mary Carey isn't the only one with a porn-themed campaign (her gubernatorial platform is quite priceless, btw)... check out this Arnold clip from the movie Pumping Iron. Just wow.
I can't recommend the Surviving Nugent reality show too highly. Finally someone understands that we like to see them suffer and that all the suffering of Survivor can be compressed into 4 days and 2 hours of pure TV joy.
