Anthony Sued by Daily Oklahoman

The Associated Press reports that the Oklahoma Publishing Company (Daily Oklahoman) sued Bob Anthony and his campaign, seeking the removal of some of Anthony's ads. A hearing was to begin Friday in the matter. The Oklahoma Publishing Company called the ads misleading and said Anthony used their copyrighted material without their permission.

What is this really about? It's about the Gaylords, owners of the Daily Oklahoman, not being happy about Anthony running against their man, Kirk Humphries. Lots of candidates use quotes from newspapers in their campaign ads and you can bet that if Humphries did the same, the Oklahoman wouldn't sue him. After all, they own him.
