Teaching the Liberal Media a Lesson They Won’t Soon Forget!

Sometimes when things come down hard on you — like being razzed by

your own supporters for your choice of Supreme Court Nominee and

members of your posse getting indicted — you have to go for whatever

little victories you can get. In this case, the victory in question is

putting the smackdown on The Onion. The New York Times reports:

“It has come to my attention that The Onion is using the

presidential seal on its Web site,” Grant M. Dixton, associate counsel

to the president, wrote to The Onion on Sept. 28. (At the time, Mr.

Dixton’s office was also helping Mr. Bush find a Supreme Court nominee;

days later his boss, Harriet E. Miers, was nominated.)


the United States Code, Mr. Dixton wrote that the seal “is not to be

used in connection with commercial ventures or products in any way that

suggests presidential support or endorsement.” Exceptions may be made,

he noted, but The Onion had never applied for such an exception.

‘The Onion’ is free, 1st Amendment, the White House doesn’t own the seal….\etc etc

Nice that the administration has solved all other problems such that they can pursue these types of things.

The Onion was correct in 2000 when it ran the following headline after W. was appointed:

Bush: “Our Long Nightmare of Peace and Prosperity Is Finally Over.”

” In this case, the victory in question is putting the smackdown on”

Hardly a “victory” or a “smackdown”. They still use the seal. And further more it is protected by 1st amendment rights, as well as the fact as The Onion never puts on the air of real news. Any one who thinks The Onion is real news, has the intelect of Bush.
