Any publicity is good publicity: Ted Cruz and Fox News hamsters are not Richard Gere's gerbils

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — An anchor for Fox News is suing Hasbro for more than $ 5 million over a toy hamster that shares her name — and possibly even her resemblance.

Faulkner has been at Fox News for a decade. She hosts the daytime show “Outnumbered” and anchors a Sunday evening newscast.

Her lawsuit says that in addition to sharing her name, the toy bears a physical resemblance to Faulkner’s traditional professional appearance, including its complexion, eye shape and eye makeup design.

The Harris Faulkner toy was introduced in 2014, according to the lawsuit, and was sold in a package as the pet hamster of a terrier named Benson Detwyler. Other toys in the popular line include animals named Pancakes Watkins, Puffball Petrovsky and Pepper Clark.
