netbuzz writes "Recognizing that public shame is a potent weapon, the Electronic Frontier Foundation today launched a new Web site — its Takedown Hall of Shame — that will shine an unflattering spotlight on those corporations and individuals who abuse copyright claims to stifle free speech. Among the early inductees are NPR, NBC, CBS, and Diebold."

    I'm not so sure he's consciously attempting to troll. commodore64_love has shown time and time again that he falls very short on the ability to recognize shortcomings in both himself and those he tries to champion. I think he honestly believes that Fox is the epitome of "fair and balanced" reporting and that they are being picked on because of it.
