Faux News

Twisting Fox's "We report. You decide." news tagline, Agitproperties.com was doing a brisk business with their parody t-shirts for "Faux News: We distort. You comply." Then the fog of war set in: the country stopped buying antiwar merchandise and the Agitproperties' web hits dwindled to a few hundred a day. Then Fox got wind of the satire and sent a cease-and-desist letter. Now t-shirt sales are booming, and hits are soaring over the 41,000/day mark.

A link from the neoconservative Free Republic includes a subscription-only Salon.com story on Fox's actions, plus reams of rants from flipped-out Freepers.
