In order to avoid the need for lawsuits à la Fox News, which is suing Al Franken for using the term "fair and balanced" (which is why Nitpicker and numerous others are also fair and balanced now), TBogg has put up a list of phrases he's claiming as well.

Also, Fox News is preparing lawsuits against the following:

  • Shimon Peres, who said that the Mitchell report on Israel was "fair and balanced."

  • Reginald A. Wilkinson, Director, Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction, who called for a "fair and balanced" approach to the parole system in Ohio.

  • Foodservice Equipment Reports magazine, which claims to give "fair and balanced evaluations of foodservice equipment and supplies."

  • The AFL-CIO, who insanely thinks that we need a "fair and balanced" judiciary.

  • Brent Bozell, whose newsletter Medianomics is said to provide "reporters and Hollywood insiders with free enterprise perspectives and examples of how to present stories in a fair and balanced manner."

  • British Energy’s executive chairman Robin Jeffrey, who said that a House of Commons Trade & Industry Committee had reached "fair and balanced" conclusions.
