In February 2003, a Florida Court of Appeals unanimously agreed with an assertion by FOX News that there is no rule against distorting or falsifying the news in the United States.

I am looking forward to the day that Rupert Murdoch and the trash his news organisation produces goes down the toilet. Since it seems he is planning to charge for his news, at least people won’t read it anymore. He is trying to control something as if the old newspaper rules applied.
