In a Fox News rut

Fox News threatened to sue Fox Broadcast Network (it’s sister company) over a parody in The Simpsons, Matt Groening revealed on Fresh Air.

Quoth Matt:

“We called their bluff because we didn’t think Rupert Murdoch would pay for Fox to sue itself. We got away with it. But so now Fox has a new rule that we can’t do those little fake news crawls along the bottom of the screen in a cartoon because it might confuse the viewers into thinking it’s real news.” (Matt’s emphasis) [Terri and Matt laughing]

Oh Fox News, I hate you.
