Here's an interesting update on the lawsuit filed by pink slime manufacturers against ABC news: ABC wants the lawsuit moved to federal court instead of circuit court.

If you can't remember, Beef Products Inc. is suing ABC News Inc. for defamation over its coverage of a meat product with the nickname 'pink slime.' It fits, and we call it that, because that's what it is. The company who is losing money because people are now aware of how gross it is says the network created an inaccurate impression that the product is unsafe.

We disagree, they just revealed how disgusting it is.

That's not stopping the company from seeking $1.2 billion in damages, though. If you're going to launch something crazy, you might as well go all out, right?

ABC says they want the suit moved to federal district court in South Dakota because it the parties involved are all from different states.

We'd say that's not unreasonable. Besides, we're still wondering how you can be sued for defamation if you're just tellin' it like it is. Ha!
