<<Wrong, thankfully.  Fair use is often commercial.  2 Live Crew was
its parody of Roy Orbison's "Oh Pretty Woman" for profit, yet was confirmed
in its fair use.>>

Ah - granted...

but here they are producing something new, and the parody is protected
speach, possibly political speach.

In the case of about.com, they are just taking the headlines. They are
copying the head lines.  Where is the protected political speach.

This is one of the problems of talking about fair use as a single doctrine.
My mistake.  My apologies.
