Old rivals square off again

Before there was Fox vs. CNN, there was Fox vs. Tribune – a rivalry on the same level with the Bears vs. Packers, with both entities owning television stations in the top three markets. (Bill O’Reilly is no fan of the Tribune Co., occasionally blasting the company’s newspapers, including the Chicago Tribune – I wonder why he doesn’t blast its rival, the Chicago Sun-Times. Hmmm….)

Anyway, the Tribune Co. has filed a lawsuit against News Corp. , owner of the Fox News Channel, telling them to stop using the name Red Eye as the title of its new late-night television show, because the Chicago Tribune claims copyright over the name because it uses it for its daily free paper distributed here in the Chicago area.
