So is Paul Newman Still HUD?

With tongue firmly in cheek, Westports Paul Newman used an op-ed piece in todayҒs New York Times to make fun of the Fox News Network for its suit against political satirist Al Franken.

Fox is suing Franken for using the phrase “fair and balanced” in the title of his new book.

Wrote Newman: In claiming trademark violation, Fox sets a noble example for standing firm against whatever.Ӕ

Unreliable sources report that the Fox suit has inspired Paul Newman, the actor, to file a similar suit in federal court against the Department of Housing and Urban Development, commonly called HUD. Mr. Newman claims piracy of personality and copycat infringement.Ӕ

The Times identifies the author of the column this way: Paul Newman, an actor, is chief executive of Salad King.Ԕ
