So... That Major Saudi Investor In Fox, Who Has Demanded and Received Changes in Fox's Coverage of Muslim Riots and Outrages, Is... A Terrorist Financier

Wow.

As @davereaboi notes, at least Fox reported on this.

That's fine. But we should also talk about why they have been in bed with an obvious terrorist sympathizer for ten years (now alleged to be an actual terrorist).

5 According to Obama, every time you go to church you are sympathizing with, nay, worshipping a terrorist.

The worst type of terrorist, too.
Because, how can you defeat a terrorist that won't stay dead?

14 so i should have put this in the last thread but I was just saying on twitter that what Brian Williams did wasn't just dishonest, it was dumb and crude.

Let's admit that most of us wouldn't mind if other people thought we were kind of more badass than we were.

Williams had a lot of options to get people to think he was badass. He did not have to tell these stupid stories where he's obviously *intending* to make you think he's a hero.

He could have done what actual heroes tend to do. They sort of shrug, deflect, and say something badass like "I did my job, that's all a man can do."

The thing is, you wind up imagining they did all this Hero Shit, even if they actually didn't see any combat at all.

Williams insisted on this crude, direct sort of Hero Tale (like the Hero Tales of teenagers talking about, sometimes lying about, getting laid) instead of the sort of cool badass "A little bit of danger comes with the paycheck, you know" answer that 1) would sound badass and 2) would not be a lie.

56 Damn, Ace. It's a publicly traded company. Alwaleed couldn't be stopped from buying shares.

If you have evidence that Alwaleed influenced FNC coverage of the Saudis, pony up. I'm all ears.

Otherwise, you sound like a juiceboxer from Vox.

Posted by: AB at February 07, 2015 08:47 PM (DBEQZ)

57 AD, the Saudis fund the building of mosques in the U.S., they endow universities, they buy shares in media corporations, and they also donate to politicians of both parties. It's a pattern. It's a financial component to the jihad. They are definitely influencing opinion makers and policy makers.

Posted by: Prince Bandar at February 07, 2015 09:02 PM (Eszro)

60 Ace, this is one of the most important topics you've written about lately and...radio silence, for the most part.
It's difficult to keep up with the (several) factions who've perverted our news media, from the professional class newsmakers, journalism departments, etc. through public and private elementary and secondary education.
Yes, 'progressives' who decry 'Faux News' may not get.it.all. But they are damn right that there should be no trust, no credibility given to this network.

Posted by: LadyS at February 07, 2015 09:24 PM (5dip8)

61 Part hunch, part hope: it would make perfect sense that other networks are even more in the bag for terrorist financiers, maybe worse. By coming clean, FNC is in a position to let them wrap themselves in the flag, and then bring the hammer. If there's a surprisingly muted reaction from the Alphabets, you'll know why.

Posted by: Ray Van Dune at February 07, 2015 09:32 PM (c41Rr)

65 Hey Ace - How does this (from earlier in the week) not make it into the story\post?

"Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal said Wednesday that his company will shed most of its stake in Rupert Murdoch's News Corp., taking its 6.6% ownership down to 1%."
