Prince Michael III, IV, V, & VI Are On The Way
Now Sue Them For Being Assholes
While I do admit that this lawsuit is largely spurious and will likely go the way of Fox's own copyright attack on Al Franken ("wholly without merit", said the judge), nonetheless I love it. MoveOn.org and Common Cause filed a petition with the Federal Trade Commission challenging Fox's use of the laughable slogan "Fair and Balanced" based on the assertion that it's news reports are "deliberately and consistently distorted and twisted to promote the Republican Party of the U.S. and an extreme right-wing viewpoint." It's about time the Left took off the kid gloves and starting mixing it up.
On Second Thought, Maybe I Do Like Jadakiss' Verse On "Run"
Every once and a while rappers go less "Don Diva" and more "Behold a Pale Horse." Jadakiss' new single, "Why?", includes the conspiratorial line, "Why did Bush knock down the towers?", an obvious reference to 9/11. While Jadakiss claims he was just being metaphorical, that didn't stop the bloviating Bill O'Reilly from labeling him a "smear merchant" and MTV from playing an edited version of the video. Remember, over a thousand US soldiers have died in Iraq to protect your freedom to censor rap songs critical of the president. Now go home and download "Bush Killer."
