FOX NEWS ALERT!! Network bought and paid for by Arab billionaire who controls news content

By Aussiegirl

Well, we knew it was too good to last. Fox News is officially dead. The same Arab billionaire who recently donated millions to Harvard and Georgetown also has extensive media holdings in Fox News, holdings he uses to influence the content of the broadcasts. Fox has become little more than the "Missing Beautiful White Person of the Week" network, along with politically correct mouthpiece for the Muslim world. It appears there is nothing the west will not sell if the price is right, including our freedom of the press, or pride, our dignity and our very national security. I think if Rudi Giuliani chooses to run, his refusal to accept money from this very same Prince will be one of the shining qualifications he can present.

There's one good thing about the news that Alwaleed bin Talal, the richest Saudi prince in the world, just bought Harvard and Georgetown universities — or, at least buried them up to their ivy in $40 million.

It gives everybody reason to relive a McAuliffe moment. McAuliffe, of course, was Gen. Anthony C. McAuliffe, who, in response to a Nazi invitation to surrender during the 1944 Battle of the Bulge, sent back a one-word reply: "NUTS."

In kindred spirit, but in a very different war, Rudy Giuliani gave the United States a McAuliffe moment after he realized that Mr. Alwaleed's $10 million donation to help rebuild the Twin Towers after 9/11 was in fact the price of principle. Having signed his hefty check, Mr. Alwaleed spoke his nasty piece: basically, that the United States had it coming — "it" being 9/11 — given America's support of Israel.

Rudy didn't say "nuts," but he immediately returned the money. "Not only are those statements wrong," Mr. Giuliani said, "they're part of the problem."

[...]Take [the prince's] media holdings. In the West, they include a sizeable stake in Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation, which owns Fox News, "fair and balanced" pride of any parent company. And Mr. Alwaleed takes pride — pride of ownership, anyway — in Fox as well. "During last month's street protests in France," he bragged to an audience at a Dubai media conference, according to Middle East Online, "Fox ran a banner saying: 'Muslim riots.' I picked up the phone and called Murdoch" — Rupert — "to tell him these are not Muslim riots, these are riots out of poverty. Within 30 minutes," the prince recalled, "the title was changed from 'Muslim riots' to 'civil riots.'"

Was it not Lenin himself who said, "The capitalist will sell the very rope with which he is to be hanged, if he thinks he will make a profit"?
