    FOX, Lies & Videotape: debunking an internet myth

    I'll cut to the conclusion:

    It is clear from the evidence presented here that FOX did not argue, as claimed by several of its critics, that it had a First Amendment to lie in its news reports. It's also plain that the Florida courts did not rule that FOX and other broadcasters had such a right.

    Oh, and FOX most certainly did contest the charge that they'd pressured the reporters to lie or distort the news. All you have to do is read their filings at the trial and appellate court levels to learn that.
