NEW YORK, Aug. 26 (UPI) -- In a sort of victory lap, Al Franken co-hosted on CNN's "Crossfire" and appeared on CNN's "Live From the Headlines" Monday.
Franken's appearances followed the decision by Fox News not to appeal a court ruling dismissing its lawsuit against Franken and publisher Penguin.
Fox News had filed a lawsuit over its trademark phrase "fair and balanced," which appears on the cover of Franken's upcoming book, "Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right."
U.S. District Judge Denny Chin ruled Franken's book was a clear example of parody, Daily Variety reported.
The book tops the list of best-sellers at Amazon.com, most likely as a result of the publicity generated by the Fox News lawsuit, Variety reported.
"It's time to return Al Franken to the obscurity that he's normally accustomed to," a Fox News spokeswoman said.
