Fox Isn’t Laughing About an ABC Sitcom Called ‘Fair and Balanced’

Comedy co-opts slogan Fox News trademarked in 1997

Fox News chairman and CEO Roger Ailes isn't amused by ABC's plans for a comedy called Fair and Balanced. The show, from ABC and Lionsgate, stars Kal Penn as a journalist who aspires to work for NPR, but instead takes a job at a cable news network that resembles Fox News Channel.
