Fox News Gets Caught
A New York federal
judge has denied Fox News' attempt to dismiss a lawsuit claiming that it
breached a contract by continuing to show footage of convicted scam artist
Bernie Madoff and his wife on a yacht.
The cable news network is battling Kenneth Stadt, who owns the rights to the Madoff video. In early 2009, Stadt gave
Fox News an exclusive license to his footage for 45 days in return for $10,000. The network later re-upped for another 45 days in return for $50,000 more. According to the complaint, the term then expired, but Fox allegedly kept using the footage anyway.
Do you know what’s going on down in Washington today? The Senate began the Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Elena Kagan.

Paul McCartney Won't Apologize For Bush Joke
"Has anyone ever watched Saturday Night Live? They joke about Bush all the time. As for a public apology, are they kidding? I was in two minds whether to say it and I actually waited until the President had gone because I didn’t want to embarrass him or his family. But hey, come on, it’s rock and roll. It wasn’t a religious meeting and I’m allowed to make jokes.”
Things in Washington are always so political. President Obama said that the opposition to Elena Kagan seems like “pretty thin gruel.” That’s how he describes the opposition. If you want thick gruel, just go down to the Gulf of Mexico.- David Letterman

Sure. We Can Trust Big Business.
Monday night on MSNBC, Rachel Maddow laid out a rather startling set of numbers: In the past three years, BP has netted $58.3 billion in profit, yet has spent only $29 million (0.05% of the profit) on safer-drilling research. Over the same period, BP hasn't spent one penny on researching how to respond to any type of oil spill, much less one as huge as the breach currently fouling the Gulf.
GOP Patriotism: NO Dinero For Homeless Veterans
