This tweet caught my eye last night:
If a criminal defense attorney says that his client was brainwashed into participating in The Stupid Coup because of Foxitus and Foxmania, can the American Psychological Association be far behind?
Question for the Legals amongst us: If said client is found not guilty because of Foxmania, does that set a precedent? Could we make announcements before every program that watching this network can lead to Foxitus? You know, like warnings on cigarettes packages and booze?
And I’m totally serious: can their broadcast license be taken away if the lawyer prevails – if Fox is legally responsible for misinforming the public, isn’t that cause?
