Stick it to Fox News Here
Moveon.org has a petition going to the FTC to get them to stop Fox from using "Fair and Balanced" in their advertising. Sign it!

P.S. I hope this isn't a dupe.

2. done & link to make point of fox lies
And in case you haven't seen this link, on Fox being cited for lying in the UK, check it out via the Daily KOS. He has a link to the The British Government's Office of Communications (Ofcom) which issued the ruling.

Brits cite Fox for lying

The US no longer has a fairness doctrine in broadcasting, but the Brits apparently do. And Fox, that bastion of fairness and balance, has run afoul of it.

Not sure how Fox might manage to survive in a country that apparently requires, by law, actual fairness and balance.
