Inside Fox, Ailes held "Fair & Balanced" seminars with staff members.

As Brooks Barnes and Sydney Ember detailed in an April New York Times Magazine feature, Rupert Murdoch's sons have pushed for big changes in Fox News' culture since taking over the family business empire two years ago.

The right-leaning news network begun a raft of changes following Alies' departure. But "Fair & Balanced" definitely was best known, and most mockable.

Judge Denny Chin of United States District Court who presided over the court said, "Of course, it is ironic that a media company that should be fighting for the First Amendment is trying to undermine it".
