Fox News sued comedian Al Franken for using the phrase "Fair & Balanced" in the title of his upcoming book, "Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right." Fox is saying that phrase is their licensed trademark.

Al Franken thanked Fox for the publicity. Franken's book, due out next month, ranked No. 489 in sales on before the lawsuit. Now its number 1.

The bloggers are fisking on this. is compiling a list of bloggers , over 600 so far that are now sporting the phrase on their pages, expressing disdain for the action.

Is your blog fair & balanced too!
