Fox News and the Debate(s)

Jeff Jarvis

I talked to a Fox News spokesman about their policy on use of video from tonight's Republican debate. Rather than opening up some, as MSNBC has done, or fully, as CNN has done, they're playing a big coy: They say that we should consult our attorneys regarding fair use.

The use of the word "attorney" makes it sound like a threat (it's a word that scares anyone except a politician) but that doesn't seem to be the intent. As I understand it, they respect fair use and if you think you can justify that your use is fair (and balanced?) then they won't hassle you.
