Sign says 'no' to Murdoch

Quote:

ATLANTA - Fox News Channel is threatening to take a sign company to court if it does not post a cheeky billboard tweaking archrival CNN.

Fox claims the owners of the billboard, across the street from CNN's Atlanta offices, refuse to post a message trumpeting Fox's successes in the ratings war between the cable networks.

But regardless of the issue, am I the only one who thinks this is a really childish way to advertise?

Perhaps Fox should remember the outcome of it's suit over the phrase 'fair and balanced'. The owner of the billboard has the say over what is on it, not Fox.

Awwww, headache, I liked the thread more when the reference was subtle. Oh well, I guess some people needed the connection to be made obvious.

Rather, I'm amused at the double standards. I'm sure that FNC was on Disney's side on F911.

You know better. As a new organization, they don't take sides

It's Fox News. You expect intelligence?

"News" stations......it's all about entertaiment. And who gets the scoop on sensational film clips. FoX News.....now that's a laugh.
It should be called "The RNC presents fair and balanced Fox News."
But what the hey....all the other "news" stations are run by those commie liberals. Let the Republicans have their Fox News.

Just on a personal note, I say no to Murdoch every day. It's a sort of creed of mine.
