FOX News core hypocrisy

I rarely watch the cable news channels.  I don’t find any of them very informative.  I have singled out FOX News just because of this clip.  I want to keep this clip, for that reason I post it.

That said, it is amusing and stunning in its revelation.  A self-inflicted indictment of FOX’s investigative journalism and ethics.  Jon Stewart points out that the “shady” “evil” Arab financial supporter of “radical Imams” and “terrorists” (per FOX reports) – is the largest shareholder in News Corp.

News Corp. is Rupert Murdoch’s and is the parent company of FOX News .

Fox News is either evil or stupid for not mentioning that Alwaleed bin Talal is News Corp.’s largest shareholder.

Al Waleed bin Talal bin Abdulaziz al Saud (Arabic: الوليد بن طلال بن عبد العزيز آل سعود‎) (born 7 March 1955) is a Saudi Arabian businessman and investor. He is a member of the Saudi royal family.  -wiki

 

Some “radical Islamic schools” Al-Waleed has funded:

Phillips Academy
In 2002, Al Waleed donated $500,000 to help fund the George Herbert Walker Bush Scholarship at Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts.

Western Universities
On 8 May 2008, he gave £16m to Edinburgh University to fund the “centre for the study of Islam in the contemporary world.”
