R.E.M. demand Fox News stop playing ‘Losing My Religion’ | Inside TV | EW.com

Very mature, Fox News (not that we’re surprised). Publicity? If you have the right to appropriate this song with the specific intent of imbuing it with new meaning, do the artists not have the right to take part in the process?

“FOX News Channel’s use of an R.E.M. song during Thursday’s edition of Fox & Friends was in full accordance with its license agreements with all appropriate parties. Nevertheless, we’re always flattered to have this much attention for a song selection and we hope R.E.M. was able to satisfy their publicity fix,” A representative for Fox News responded. via R.E.M. demand Fox News stop playing ‘Losing My Religion’ | Inside TV | EW.com.
